Police Halloween costumes are all the rage these days. However, you don’t have to get the same police costume that everyone else is wearing. There are several different types of police uniforms that would make a great Halloween costume. You can take advantage of several different American police uniforms to create your costume, or look to other countries such as England or Canada for inspiration.

Iron “S.W.A.T” onto the front of the assault jacket. Also get an iron-on United States flag patch, and iron it onto the upper arm of the jacket.
