Gifts for the New Police Officer

Updated November 21, 2016

When either a friend or family member heads down the law enforcement career path and becomes a police officer, it is a nice gesture to give him a special gift. There are many specialised police officer gifts that he is sure to love and appreciate as he embarks on his new career.


While police officers are often seen in uniform, some officers wear shirts and ties while working in the office. Give him a police-themed tie that he can wear for those long office days. Some police ties have a badge on them, while others are more of a novelty and have handcuffs on them. Before picking out a tie, consider the new police officer's personality and sense of style --- he will appreciate the personal touch.

Coffee Mug

For a new police officer who appreciates humour, give her a way to enjoy a police officer's favourite vice --- coffee. A police officer coffee mug is a witty gift to give a new police officer, and it also makes a nice decoration on a desk or in an office. These mugs are available in a variety of styles, with some being patriotic and others being plain humorous.

Picture Frame

For an officer who enjoys sentimental moments and has pride in his profession, present him an engraved police officer picture frame. This is an ideal gift for either the home or the office, and it is a way for an officer to display and be proud of his new profession. There is a lot of pride that comes with a career in law enforcement, and this is one way to display that.

Business Card Holder

For a police officer about to start her new job, give her an engraved business card holder. This is a symbol of her professional accomplishment and will make a poignant display on her new office desk. It is a way for her to subtly and professionally display her pride about her new career in law enforcement.
