But for one evening, this group of crime fighters will be swapping night patrol for a strut down the catwalk in a charity fashion show.
The Cops on the Catwalk fashion extravaganza is being organised by Ipswich Police and will feature a number of police officers as well as administrative staff.
The colour black might always be in fashion according to the experts, but these officers are looking forward to exchanging their sensible uniforms for a splash of colour.

“I haven't done anything like this before so I'm quite nervous. I think quite a lot of people are going to come along,” said Pc Last.
“I'm hoping I'm not going to do a Naomi Campbell and fall over. It should be fun and we're hoping to raise a good sum of money.”
The models will be transformed with the help of Hair Ministry and Clarins make-up artists who have all offered their services free of charge to help towards the worthy cause.
The show, which is being held at Suffolk College, is being choreographed by the college's performing arts students and DT Disco, while Laser Light and Sound is also part of the team involved.
Those attending the black tie event, on April 1, will be treated to a buffet at the after show party being organised by Suffolk College Catering and Hospitality students.
