Noun (pl. bobbies), informal

A police officer. (Pl. police officers)

“Dear Mummy and Daddy,

If you’re reading this, I’ve ran away. Don’t bother looking for me because that’s what the bobbies will assume. If we talk or you send me a food basket, then they’ll track me down. I’m too young and pretty and innocent to go to jail! So this will have to do. I’m off to become a ninja…thought about being a pirate; but I need to learn to hide in plain sight. Promise me you won’t let Katie move into my room?

Love Your Runaway Daughter,

Ella.”
