Cops & Robbers Party Ideas

General Party Themes

There are a few different options for a cops and robbers party theme: think American law enforcement officials, CIA and FBI agents, British bobbies, or sexy cops and robbers. Have a 1970s and 1980s cop show theme (shows include Miami Vice, Magnum PI, or Life on Mars). Or have an Australian-themed cops and robbers party with convicts and Australian bush rangers such as the infamous Ned Kelly.
