Law enforcement has a language all its own, and that language can be confusing. Sometimes the terms and slang used by one agency’s officers is incomprehensible to officers a few miles away. That’s why is offering you this special forum for sharing law enforcement slang and terminology. This special dictionary allows you, the readers of Police Magazine/ to add terms, definitions, and explain where and how those terms are used. Note: Some of these terms are vulgar and some are offensive. READER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.
