Cops - Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit wiki

Playing as the cop

Damage plays a very important part in Hot Pursuit and acts as the determining factor for busting racers. Here, as a cop you must cause as much damage to racer cars as you can, and take as little as you can, if you take too much, your car will be wrecked and the event will end. As the car takes more damage, the screen will grey out and a critical damage warning will pop up if damage gets too much.

 

Weapons and Gadgets

EMP: Cops have access to a EMP weapon in Hot Pursuit. It requires a lock onto the target, and then the target to stay in range, and the Line of Sight of the player who used it. It will shut down the opponents car so for cops, it makes for an easy bust.

Spike Strips: Spike strips are designed to pop out of the back of your car to take out the guys behind you. Good for cops to take out a racer behind them, and the racer uses it the exact same way to get a cop off their back.
 

Helicopter: The helicopter will track down fleeing racers if they're too far ahead or have gone off-road. The helicopter will drop spikes of its own attempting to slow down the racer too.

Roadblocks: A roadblock is set up ahead of the racer and then awaits the racer to crash into the roadblock either slowing them to let the cops catch up or stop them completely, either way, if a racer doesn't know how to get past them, they could end up with lots of damage.
