megu(ri)
meaning: go around

お巡りさん == omawarisan == (noun) policeman (friendly term)
巡回 == junkai == (noun which can take する to act as a verb) going around, patrol, round, tour


Left/outer radical is 'movement'. Right/inner radical is a variant of 'river' (川), which acts phonetically to express 'see'. Thus 'to move and see', i.e. to inspect. Henshall suggests taking the 'river' radical as a 'river with sharp bends', and as a mnemonic: 'Moving river goes around sharp bends.'
