I hate to say this, but...are they canon

Also, if everyone in the Matrix is a robotic slave, then why would they have civilian police forces? Think about it.
The Path of Neo is the only tie in media that isn't considered canon, the rest are. The Matrix Online's background history and files are given slightly more credence than The Animatrix which is canon but stylistically different for each segment, so the 'look' of it isn't

And the idea is to create as realistic a world as possible, law enforcement exists mainly to keep up appearances, and partly to have the humans keep each other in line and lessen the burdon on the programs. And have a police state of controlable law enforcement spying on humans, armed, used to taking orders, and can take them over at a moments notice.

As Neo said, just layers of control.
