Police and Criminal Costume Ideas

Throughout history, the classic battle between good and evil has fascinated us all. Cops and robbers is a game that all kids play. We’re intrigued by famous criminal couples like Bonnie and Clyde, and Butch and Sundance. Cool Hand Luke was the coolest. Then there are iconic cops like Joe Friday and Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens. The age-old question has always been, who will win—the good guys or the bad guys?

You can be on either side of the thin blue line with our great costumes and accessories for police, SWAT, deputy sheriffs and prisoners, whether modern-day or from the days of the chain gang. From the station house to the big house, we’ve got you covered. Glam up jailhouse jumpsuits for her, or keep it simple by just adding some shackles. Get everyone in the family involved with costumes for troopers-in-training and pint-sized police officers. Even Fido can’t escape the long arm of the law.

What Do You Want to Be? - Good or Bad

Male Convict

Back in the day, prisoners wore stripes to make it difficult for an escaped inmate to avoid recognition and recapture. So put on this distinctive attire and bring along the old ball and chain to the party. Set yourself free and show your stripes.

“I’m innocent!”

Female Deputy

If you dare, you can make law enforcement look smashing. They’ll be lining up to be put in handcuffs. Uphold the law of the party and get noticed when you dress as a daring deputy. So put your hands in the air and party on.

“Reporting for duty, sir.”

Female Prisoner

Women in prison are now all the rage thanks to a certain show on Netflix. Piper makes being a convicted felon look glamorous, and so can you. Maybe you’re a prisoner of love, or just love the color orange. Work it.

“Orange is the new black.”

Police Officer

Women love a man in uniform, and they won’t be resisting arrest when you dress as a police officer at the next costume party. You can read them their rights, including the right to remain friendly. Don’t forget the handcuffs.

“Come out with your hands up!”

Little Sheriff Toddler

There’s a reason they called it the Wild West. They’ll have fun dressing as the sheriff in town. They can wear the star and make sure the shenanigans are kept to a minimum. Don’t forget the 10-gallon hat. Or maybe keep it to 5 gallons for your little half-pint.

“Support your local sheriff.”


SWAT stands for special weapons and tactics. The uniform represents the ultimate in bravery and charisma. Every guy dreams of strapping on the vest and being a hero, even just for a day. The next time you break down a door for fun, you’ll want to wear this.

“You’re either SWAT or you’re not.”
