proper noun that needs capitalization
I am a Police Officer and in a report I refer to the emergency lights on my car. Is emergency lights a proper noun that needs to be capitalized?
No, it's not. Neither is police officer when used in this context. If you write 'He is a police officer', that is not a proper noun. You would write 'Officer Sorrell is a police officer', because that is now a title and proper noun.
