Correct option is
An/A' is used as an indefinite article for a thing or person when the reader doesn't know which one we are referring to out of many nouns. It states the random nature of the subject.
'The' is used as a definite article for a thing or person when the reader knows which one we are exactly referring to. It states the specific nature of the subject.
Option A is correct as the blank requires no article to carry out the meaning of the sentence. Option D is incorrect because 'An' is used with a word having a vowel sound. Option B is incorrect as 'The policemen' is illogical here as they haven't been mentioned previously as policemen. Option C is incorrect as 'A' is used for a singular countable noun.
