Vatican City comes in at over 15,000! (Probably because they are busy chasing all the molesters)

There's a caveat though:
Note that in some countries, particularly those organised under a federal system, such as the US and Canada, the total number of police officers may be much greater because sub-national governments employ significant numbers.
Still, my back of the envelope calculations show that it is approximately right. I get 246/100K if there's 800K police officers in the US.

Dutch former anti-Muslim politician converts to Islam

Joram van Klaveren is the second ex-PVV politician to convert.

A former member of Geert Wilders' far-right Dutch party announced Monday that he has converted to Islam.

Joram Van Klaveren said he made the switch from critic to convert while writing a book about Islam. "During that writing I came across more and more things that made my view on Islam falter," he told Dutch radio.

Van Klaveren was a member of parliament for the Freedom Party (PVV) from 2010 to 2014, but quit the party after Wilders' asked supporters during a rally in 2014 if they wanted more or fewer Moroccans in the Netherlands, to which the crowd chanted “Fewer! Fewer! Fewer!”

After leaving the PVV, Van Klaveren set up his own party, For Netherlands, but failed to win a seat in the 2017 national election and quit politics.
