When I worked as a medic we used "scrote" for anyone unsavory, unkempt, nasty, gross, lazy, or for a user of the system. It comes from the word "scrotum". Fits right into police work.

At one time when I went through the police academy, SCROTE had an actual definition consisting of "semi criminal...". Does anyone remember the old acronym? The current use certainly hits the target however!
