Assunto:  Dc. House.
 
Mensagem:  "At the cops" is not an expression I have heard before.  "To go to the cops" (to go to a police station to report a crime) and "to be with the cops" (to speak with the police) are commonly used.  On the other hand, "she is at the district attorney" would be quite normal.

The actor who plays Dr. House is English, not American.  His American accent is wonderful.  Could he have said something British by accident, something not in the script?
