    Yes, I've heard John Law, or Johnnie Law.

      In and around Detroit, throughout the 60's and 70's, I heard the police refered to as 'the boys' more than any other term. Heard 'pigs' a few times, usually self-conciously from a young man, and 'fuzz' never.
      But the cops were called 'the boys' consistently.
      Anyone ever hear them seriously called 'the flatfoots'? Or 'John Law'?

      There may be regional variations, too. I may have heard bulls once or twice in recent times; fuzz, only in the movies.
