It doesn't appear to accept Polisi for police. That's weird, no?

Very. You should report it. Askari in Kenya would be 'soldier'.

Askari can be translated into "Guard", "Policeman", "soldier" or even "militia" - Its a borrowing from Arabic. But the issue here is that the English translation should read "The Policeman is a good person" .
