One of my favorites, and I think it's underrated, is the entry for [high] rate of speed. Living around Pensacola for so long, there is no shortage of hicks who use that dumb phrase. The Urban Dictionary definition warms the cockles of my heart.

No offense to Mad Dog or any other peace officers, but that is what I call "cop speak." (Using more words and more polysyllabic words, but not smarter words, to sound official)

There’s not just “cop speak;” it goes into “cop intonation and body language,” too. I drill with an SDPD officer. He’s a motivated Sailor and a great trainer. But it’s also amusing that his default presentation style just screams “cop,” even when he’s wearing green instead of blue.
