There are several meanings behind dreams of police arrest. In this dream interpretation, we will share what it means to dream of police arresting you.
It may come as a surprise to the dreamer, if they saw a dream of police arresting them, knowing fully well they committed no crime. 

Dream of police arrest, although not common, do come to different kind of people. Whenever these dreams show up, they always leave the dreamer with many questions. 

Even law-abiding people also see dreams of police arresting them. That is to say, the fact that you are not a troublesome person in the physical world, still cannot exempt you from seeing yourself arrested by the police in a dream. 

What Does It Mean To Dream Of Police Arresting You

That also gives us a valid question to ponder on: why do the police arrest or attempt to arrest the innocent in dreams, even including Christians? Surely, there's is a reason behind that and we will explore it in this article. 

Isaiah 13:3 NLT
I, the LORD, have dedicated these soldiers for this task. Yes, I have called mighty warriors to express my anger, and they will rejoice when I am exalted.

A dream of police arrest may be a good or bad omen, depending on who was arrested in the dream. A police dream can also either emanate from God or from the enemy. 

Police in the dream are often either spiritual forces from Heaven on an assignment, or the forces of darkness on rampage. 

Warrior angels sent from God on a mission can be seen sometimes by a Christian as police force in the dream. Also, the forces of darkness sent on an evil assignment, can manifest as well police in the dream. 

Dream Of Police Arresting You Spiritual Meaning 


A dream of police arresting a Christian is not of God. Because God is for us and not against us, the forces of Heaven would never work against a child of God in a dream

1 Peter 5:8 BLB
Be sober-minded; watch. Your adversary the devil prowls about as a roaring lion seeking whom to devour. 

A child of God is only seen as a culprit by the kingdom of darkness. That is why, whether or not they did anything wrong, one of the attacks that the enemy would launch against them will be getting them arrested in a dream

The Bible tells us that the enemy prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking whom to to devour. That is to say, the enemy doesn't need to have a sensible reason for attacking a Christian. The fact that he is evil is just enough reason for him to launch attacks at us. 

If a Christian saw a dream of police attempting to arrest them, they should understand that those not ordinary police force like what we have in the physical world. They are agents of darkness on an assignment. 

A dream of police arresting you is just another attempt of the enemy to harass a child of God. 

If you were chased or attacked by the police in the dream, and they ended up attempting to arrest you, then you must understand that the devil has unveiled his spiritual forces against you. This is not a dream you you treat lightly. 

It is safer to escape police arrest in a dream, than to allow them to succeed in arresting you. Praying to break away from the enemy's shackles afterwards may not be that easy. 

There are several reasons why a Christian may see a dream of police attempting to arrest them. Some are as follows:

  • You have been praying warfare prayers against the kingdom of darkness. 
  • You have been going on evangelism and saving souls
  • You have been praying for people and getting them delivered 
  • Anything you are doing for God that depopulates Hell, is a threat to the enemy. It will trigger spiritual attacks, some may manifest as a dream of being arrested.

The enemy doesn't want to be the loser in the ancient war between good and evil. The enemy doesn't want to accept that he is the loser, that is why he still fights hard. 

Anything that a Christian does that is at the detriment of the kingdom of darkness, annoys the enemy. In retaliation, he may decide to send his strongest demons to spiritually arrest the Christian. 

But rest assured! If God be for you, who can stand against you? Absolutely nobody! 

1 John 3:8b
For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

The Bible tells us that our Lord Jesus Christ manifested to destroy the works of darkness. If the enemy unveils his forces against you, do not forget that through Christ, you have access to a superior force in Heaven. Ask the Lord to step in show the devil who the boss is.

If agents of darkness successfully arrest a person in the dream, the effects may manifest as follows:

  • It could hamper their spiritual fervency 
  • Their prayer life could be affected 
  • They may gradually become more carnal 
  • The enemy keeps them in spiritual captivity and manipulates every good thing concerning them. 

But remember, Jesus Christ still sets captives free! If they succeeded in arresting you in the dream, you need to pray and fast so as to break away from the bondage of Satan. 

What Does It Mean If You Dream About Police Arresting Someone


If you saw a dream of police arresting someone, the meaning will depend on whether or not the individual was guilty in the dream

In most dreams of police arresting someone, you will be aware that the police arrested only criminals in the dream. In this case, this is Heaven's army on a mission and spiritual warfare against agents of darkness. 

Seeing the police arresting a criminal in the dream sometimes reveals that God has arrested a particular agent of darkness that has been constantly harassing the dreamer spiritually. Rejoice!
