"Nightstick. Check. Taking bribes from local gangster. Check. Sense of moral superiority over fellow citizens. Check. Time to arrest me some peeps!" - a Police Officer's Thought
The Police were the first enemy who were encountered in most locations (except for Area 42, Capitol City, Tunguska, Solaris, and the Fourth Ring of Furon). The Police were relatively weak, only had a pistol, and rarely had a shotgun. The Police remained until the Alert Level increased higher than two icons, and were seen patrolling the town at lower levels.
Destroy All Humans!
Strangely, every Cop spoke with a thick Irish accent when the first two Cops at Turnipseed Farm had normal American accents in the first mission of the game.
It's also revealed through scanning a Cop's mind that they were corrupt and used excessive force all the time. They like to daydream a lot about their egos and self-aspirations, have little interest in serving the public and are eagerly waiting for their shift to be done so they can go home.

Law Enforcement Units or "Police"
The human paramilitary complex seems to extend to these so-called "boys in blue." Though relatively lacking power, the sheer numbers of these trigger-happy humans can cause annoyance once assembled.

Destroy All Humans! 2
In Destroy All Humans! 2, Crypto and Orthopox went around the Earth and different Police came after Crypto. The Police did not appear in certain locations either due to Military Presence or were not assigned to that location.
In Albion, the Police were modelled after the Metropolitan Police in England. They wore Custodian Helmets and had cocky British accents.
In Takoshima, the Police were a little outdated, possibly due to Japan's liberation after World War II.
