Erotic performer’s comeback reportedly overlooked by Hollywood police? (3,6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

lap dancer

Here is my best explanation:

'erotic performer's' is the definition.

'comeback reportedly overlooked by hollywood police?' is the subsidiary indication.

I cannot really understand how this works, but

'hollywood police?' could be 'lapd' (Los Angeles Police Department) and 'lapd' is present in the answer.

This explanation may well be incorrect...

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for lap dancer that I've seen before include "one barely performs", "Performer", "performer", "stripper", "she barely moves close" and "Erotic entertainer".)
