That sounds like a cool profession

Can someone please make sense of this to me? I don't nderstand what it is trying to say. Is it something a policemen/lawyer might say? Something like ' the long arm of the law'? Any help appreciated

I don't think there's really any context. Duolingo has really random sentences sometimes. That's kind of good, though, because it tests whether you actually understand it and aren't just guessing from context.

Thanks. I think you're right, as there really are some doozies in the exercises. cheers

Maybe "requires" would be a better translation than "needs" here?
