Hello everyone,

I have the description of a policeman and at some point it writes: "he is not what they call a copper's copper". Could you please tell me what that means?
Thank you.

    First of all, "copper" is a common slang term for policeman.

    A copper's copper is a policeman who is true to everything that policemen think a policeman should be.
