The meaning of the title of this blog refers to the fact that I once played the role of a child who had been turned into a cookie in Hansel and Gretel. So this isn't exactly German. In German it means cookies for children and not children who are cookies. A cop is as close to FBI as I could find.
IMDB reports these movie titles: I was a Communist for the FBI, I was a Zombie for the FBI. No movie titled I was a Cookie for the FBI.

I'm not aware of any character in opera who would qualify as a "singing cop." I guess the closest is the title character in "Dan Hashomer" ("Dan the Guard"), a 1942-43 composition by Marc Lavry that was the first-ever opera composed with a Hebrew libretto. Set in 1920s Palestine, Dan (baritone) is responsible for standing guard over the kibbutz. BTW, you can find some audio clips of this opera on YouTube from a 1950s studio recording, as well as on Lavry's website.
This cop is under cover. Could be anyone.
There is a police inspector in the last act of Der Rosenkavalier.
In Puccini's Girl of the Golden West there is a sheriff. He's one of the main characters.
