In everyday (street) Swahili, I do find 'askari' to be generically applied to both police and soliders; still, in this case, 'polisi' should be acceptable.

I guess this should be polisi, not askari? Or is it also normal to call the police askari?

To avoid confusion no.

I have heard "askari polisi" many times in East Africa. I don't know if that helps or just confuses the issue.
