Duty runs the lives of lawmen. The men and women who have sworn to protect and serve others rarely find time to give themselves a treat. A gift-giver can ease that burden with useful items that honour the profession and inspire the officers to continue making a difference in people's lives.


Law enforcers have to stay in tiptop shape to carry out their duties. Give them exercise equipment such as treadmills and orbital track machines that keep the cardio-respiratory system fit. Weights tone the muscles and build strength. A membership in a gym or at a shooting range will give them a chance to improve themselves and their skills whenever they like. Law enforcers also appreciate shirts and sweatpants with police logos. DVDs of films or cop shows, such as "The Shield" and "S.W.A.T," provide relaxation when they are tired at the end of a shift.

On Patrol

A police officer needs many things that will help him protect not only citizens but himself as well. A bullet-proof vest can be expensive, but it's worth it in a job where she puts her life on the line. Other supplies may come in handy in various situations. OpticsPlanet offers night-vision binoculars, ammunition bags, radar guns and other special equipment. A cop's utility belt may also need useful additions such as a cellphone case. No-spill thermal mugs keep coffee warm for officers who spend a lot of time on the road.

Desk Job

Paperwork is a big part of a career in law enforcement. You can help speed up a police officer's shift with desk organisers, business card holders and stationery. A coffee mug will come in handy also. Have such gifts embossed with police emblems and personalised with the officer's name for a special touch. Figurines, ceramics and other desk ornaments that come in the shape of policemen or sheriffs serve the double purpose of decoration and paperweight.

Charming Collections

Pay tribute to an officer's dedication by awarding her with a personalised plaque. A custom-made wall clock is a good variation of this gift. If your special officer happens to like cars, give him a miniature police car in mint condition. Patches also make a nice collection, especially if you mount it on wood or in a decorative glass case. A cop with a fine eye will find antique revolvers and pistols fascinating. Other treasures are customised watches and jewellery. Give your special officer an extra badge by presenting her with a necklace pendant or bracelet charm in the shape of a shield, gun or sheriff star. A medallion of St. Michael, patron saint of police officers, will be treasured.
