U.S. Law Enforcement Abbreviations and Acronyms

Below you will find an alphabetical listing of a wide variety of abbreviations, acronyms and other terminology used by various police and other law enforcement personnel in the United States.

While certain "insider" terms and lingo are used and recognized almost exclusively within law enforcement, other terms have gained wider acceptance and entered the vernacular of the general public. Some of these abbreviations and acronyms can be found in booking reports, police reports, or used as conversational shorthand between law enforcement officials.

Our extensive collection of U.S. Gang Acronyms offers the ethnicity, abbreviations, acronyms, and other identifiers used by many gangs in the United States.

PUNCTUATION NOTE: We're cognizant of the fact that some of the organizations listed below fail to use proper punctuation in their names. Rather than correcting this, we present their names as they normally refer to themselves.

WARNING: Some of the following acronyms may have completely different meanings in different locations.
