    I may not be sure of the full form of police, But, I have heard it from somewhere that. P - Polite , O - Obedient , L- Loyal, I - Intelligence, C - Courage, E - Ease of Help. And I am not sure, how the idea of the police has been discovered.

    In the etymology, think of similar words: polis, policy, polity, politics. The word being used for law enforcement originated as a slang term in reference to the government. It's sort of similar to the way people in the US or Mexico refer to federal police as "Feds". A correct title for police would be Law-Enforcement Officers. The word "police" goes back in history as a slang term for a law-enforcement officer representing the local government. It probably emerged among the criminal class and reached the mainstream that way. There are often modern-day slang terms for police in the US, like "cops" (referring to their copper their badges).

    This was explained to me when I was in Oxford, England. Believe it or not, one unfair yet popular tax that was instigated sometimes was the Poll Tax. Sometimes enforcement was necessary to collect it. The term for these enforcers was Pollies...
