Knew and drank with a lot of cop's when I lived in the UK. Hell I dated (and was engaged to) the chief constable's (Head guy at the cop shop for our area) daughter. Their attitude was way different from what I experience in the US. For example a friend of mine from school joined the force. I was talking to the chief constable about him and asked how he was doing, his reply, "He's a bit keen, he'll be OK once he's been wacked a few time's" 

Basically the older cop's viewed taking a few punches as a right of passage that calms down the over-zealous attitude of new PC's and forces them to adapt to a non-confrontational way of dealing with situations. De-escalation is key. 

My first encounter with an American cop was before I moved here for good. Was 1999 on new years eve. I was in Tempe in PHX and bar hopping with an English friend and a US girl I was involved with ... we approached a cop on horseback early in the morning and asked him how to get back to our hotel ... His reply "Do I look like a fucking road map boy?" Of course me and my mate about fell over laughing (Which made the cop less than happy) and went on our way. But the attitude was just so opposite to any interaction I'd had with a UK cop. 

Can't say what it's like now, but 20 years ago I had no problems with cops in the UK (Even though my younger brother was a career criminal and well know to the police) yet I avoid contract with American cops when ever possible. Just don't want anything to do with them.

Remember the only reason the cops have less crime is because of reasons and CERTAINLY NOT BECAUSE OF GUN LAWS!

When a student, I lived and worked in Amsterdam for a couple of summers in the mid 1970s. My abiding memory of the police was an open top Porsche 911 in police livery cruising up and down the motorway, with the occupants wearing racing gear and helmets - ready for anything, and way before anyone else was doing that sort of thing.

In Europe, I'm happy to see a cop, nice guys.

In US ..... I turn and go the other way when I see a cop. 
I haven't done anything, but that doesn't matter in the US

I personally felt so safe around Cops in Europe, it was a remarkable eye-opening experience.

After a while, i learned to seek out cops when i got to a new town, cause they always knew were the best bars were lol
