"Sir" works just fine.
otherwise...

Bear - The other half of "smokey the bear" because of the hats they wore.

Ah poo - AP or USAF Air Police

White mice - South vietnamese national police during the war

Chips - CHP; California Highway Patrol NEVER used until the really dumb TV show came along.

The Man - kind of US hippie era but it also included anyone in authority

County Mountie - County or local police as opposed to State police.

The Goon Squad - archaic Pacific Northwest for highway patrol portable scale cars. They gave out overload tickets to log trucks that could bankrupt gyppo loggers.
