Question White Cop On Sanford & Son

Can someone please tell me what the name of the white cop on Sanford and Son was? I need his character name, not his real name. Thanks.

I could swear it was in a episode with Mrs. Hopkins. It was the episode where Fred dresses up like Columbo to investigate Lamont's girlfriend Janet. Please check and verify if possible.

Pat Paulson was only in one episode...part 3 of "The Hawaiian Connection". He played officer Person. He played the role like he was stoned out of his mind.
