Yeah, this should be a no-brainer

Always err on the side of life. Always attempt to defuse violent encounters. The best defense against a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Taking a violent attacker's life in self defense is at the root of the non-violence axiom. Forget the "rules", and just do the right thing. Always assume the best intentions in others, but be prepared for pure evil from anybody.

Those are some various words of wisdom I've tried to live by. I don't see "cop" anywhere in there, so it probably doesn't matter if it's a law enforcement officer. As Robocop once said, serve the public trust, protect the innocent, uphold the law.
