Dreaming about the police is usually related to the law, rules, structure, authority and control.
The dream could be acting as a reminder to put a stop to your reckless behaviours or control your desires if they could get you into serious trouble. Perhaps they already have and your subconscious is warning you to avoid the repercussions a second time.
Perhaps the dream is urging you to do the right thing even if it’s not as exciting as doing the wrong thing.
If the police appear in your dream, it can also be an indicator of your own morality and conscience and may be hinting to you to stay on the right path and avoid temptations.
If you were running from the police in your dream, then you may be trying to avoid the consequences of your actions in your waking hours. Perhaps you are rejecting certain rules that you don’t feel apply to you. It could be as simple as rejecting any change that’s happening in your life right now.
If the police were arresting you- you may be feeling some sexual or emotional restraint right now because you are guilty of something. Or perhaps you feel guilty about something from your past that you can’t let go of.
If you were struggling to get hold of the police, then you need to acknowledge that you have authority in your own life. Perhaps you need to take control of the direction you wish to head rather than leaving it up to fate, chance or someone else.
More negatively, perhaps there is someone in your life who is being controlling and forcing you to do something you don’t want to. Is it time to stand up to them?
It’s possible a situation had gotten out of control in your waking hours and it’s down to you to restore justice by being the most rational person involved.
