It all goes to the fact that policing (well firefighting/military too) is still very much viewed as a very masculine, powerful profession. So it's natural that anyone who is into manly men would be drawn to and fantasize about men on the job. It's not really the uniform as much as it is what the uniform represents, though both play their parts. Even for a butcher, that outfit worn at work represents a job that is generally viewed as a man's job. So the paper hat and the apron are visual cues that trigger a reaction to the manliness they represent. When I hang out online, I have some profiles that mention I'm a cop, and then some that DO NOT mention that. That way I can minimize the cop fantasy effect if need be.
    Reminds me of when I picked up a late night snack for my wife on one of our previous pregnancies. Picking up an order from Denny's and it's just after club closing. I'm at the counter when a, um, "lady", comes running up to me. He was polite, and I was professional. Of course he brought two friends with him, one of which who asked "Is it too quiet out there? Would you like us to go start some trouble?" I said no, grabbed the food and left smiling politely, extremely glad they all saw the wedding ring on my hand. It's gotta be the manly man uniform, that's it.

    I suppose it could be the uniform, but I'd rather think it is because I am such a prime example of pure, masculinity.

    Yeah. It must be that. Or the chocolate you carry around in your pocket to lure unsuspecting women.

    This mirrors my experience, and I'm just a security gate monkey. In the current economy I wonder if it's more the lure of an employed person.
