Cops are every criminal and 'punks nightmare. It's pretty obvious why criminals hate them, but 'punks are always getting the shaft by a cop who stereotypes anybody who carries a deck loaded with anti-ICE software or illegal bodywear as a criminal also. Most cops are stand-up guys who only live to "Serve and Protect," while there are those who are worse than even the nastiest 'punk or crook. Keep in mind that a cop will most likely not be trusted in a group of 'punks, and sometimes not even with other cops or legitimate officials.

Cops earn a salary depending on whether they are employed by a government or a corporation. Government police officers typically get paid 2500 credits a month, with medical coverage included. Corporate cops can be paid less or more, depending on rank and the actual company. Start with 2D6x1000.
Start with camera eye and guidelink for government police forces, or any two for corporate cops. Genetic enhancements are frowned upon by government cops, but there are no restrictions. Any cop can get them, but city cops have to pay out of their own pockets.
