Я омоновца любила

Где рука не доходила -
Помогал дубинкою.

I think last two lines could be improved, are you interested in suggestion?
# of syllables and lengthwise.

Sure, but I don't think L2-L4 rhyming can be improved.

How about this:
If with hands he could not reach me,
He would help with his truncheon.

Straightens the meaning and if i counted correctly it closer.

L3 is nice but but it changes the meaning from dirty to violent (not my cup of tea, but it's a matter of interpretation)
L4 stressing is wrong, it needs to be [ ^- ^- ^- (^) ], like mine:
hE helped wIth his trUncheon (although the last syllable is missing in both L2 and L4, it sounds better)

Your choice, cheers.
