does Polițistul specifically mean police officer? What then do you call a policeman? Is this again the American usage, or is it an attempt to be non-sexist?


"Policeman" and "police officer" are nearly interchangeable, except in cases where you want to avoid the suffix "-man". But, in Romanian, all nouns have a gender anyway, so, usually, the male form of it is used and there aren't any genderless alternatives.
Also, AFAIK, duolingo uses American English exclusively...


It's been corrected now, "policeman" is also accepted!
