I'm no lawyer but the only reason *I* can see for a cop who's scheduled to testify in a criminal case hiring a criminal defense lawyer is that he/she anticipates possible criminal prosecution.

It is not uncommon for a witness under subpoena to give testimony in a criminal case or before a grand jury to hire counsel for advice, to avoid any potential land mines. The idea is to avoid any potential charges, not necessarily that they anticipate them.
