Alright let’s get this out of the way first: we’re pretty sure it is a crime in every state to impersonate a police officer. So… don’t do that. With that said:
Put your hands up for one of the hottest costumes available! Wearing this get-up, you don’t even need to tell people to “respect my authoritah!” They’ll do it anyway! We’re not kidding, nobody wants to get arrested, even by a fake cop. Want to cut to the front of the drinks line? “Everybody please step back, we’ve got a search warrant for this keg.” Nervous about talking to that pretty girl across the room? “Ma’am, I’m going to need you to answer a few questions.” Someone tells you you’re not a real cop? “Well, I could be! I already look great in this uniform!” You sure do, bud. You sure do.
What kind of cop will you be? The Wire? You think you’re tough enough to wear the uniform? Walking the beat, day after day, putting away the riffraff next to Jimmy McNulty and the Major Crimes Unit? Or will you be Brooklyn 99? Bagging bad guys while you crack jokes with your pals, Jake Peralta and Captain Raymond Holt? Whichever it is, to put on the blue means you have to follow a code. Every man must have a code. If you’re picking up this costume, your code must be looking good and arresting bad guys. Sure, you don’t have any “real” authority, or a “real” gun, but when you flash that plastic badge… they’ll know. You’re the law. Now pull out those plastic cuffs and put them to good use!
