Wikipedia, dein Freund und Helfer:

"The name of the character is the Elizabethan common name for the fruit of the Common Dogwood (Cornus sanguinea), considered lowly and inferior to other edible berries.[3]
Shakespeare appears to be poking mild fun at the amateur police forces
of his day, in which respectable citizens spent a fixed number of nights
per year fulfilling an obligation to protect the public peace, a job
for which they were, by and large, unqualified."
