No. I live in a city with, presumably, hundreds of police officers; I don't know the names of any of them.

No. We have far too many police officers for that.
I know the first names of a few, but they are people I know in other ways (not because of their job)

No lol.

I live in a large township outside of a medium to large sized city, surrounded by other large townships, and ALL of it is in a big fat county which is surrounded by other large nearby counties. I'm in a tri-state area, so there are two more sets of state, city, and county police within less than 20 miles of me in different directions.

Also, I work in a downtown area just crawling with cops on horses, bikes, motorcycles, cars, suvs, segways, and foot.

I do not know a single one of their names. Police do not have a good reputation in my area. Two pretty infamous deaths-by-cop have happened here, which I'm sure is part of it.

No, I reside in a sleepy suburban small town which is a low crime area. There was a police station here, and I got to know some of the police there when I was stopped on a drink-driving misdemeanor aged 21, but it closed down decades ago. Of course, it's on the edge of London, which is a high-crime city, but I rarely visit the city of my birth, nor have any knowledge of its police.

I don't know the names of any police officers in my town. Not a single one.

I know quite a few officers in my city since my father is a retired cop. I met most of them through my father when he'd take me to his office when he needed to pick up something, at the station and he will be talking to his coworkers.

Don't know any of them, and rarely even see them. They are employed by the county so none of them have a permanent town to take care of.

Why yes of course I know most of our police force

Nope. The less interaction I have with the cops the better.

No. There's too many. I'll bet there are some civilians who are known by every cop though.
