I do not think that cops should get replaced because what if the robots malfunction also hackers will be able to get into their programming systems.

I believe being a detective and criminal investigator won't be taken over by AI because I think humans are able to understand humans better and we share the same emotions, such as some people kill because of the feeling, AI wouldn't be able to feel this. But there is a chance that they will with such high tech these days it wouldn't surprise me if robots had sensors for lying, feelings, mental health, etc...
