I would stick to "conservative" colour schemes, most likely with
blue/white/black. Use white-space as your "friend" and not dead space. If
it is a regional enforcement unit, then perhaps go along the lines of their
colours. If it is for general law enforcement across a wide area (even
country) then as boring as it is, stick with the blue/black and white. I
don't like using red or amber/yellow with law related work. It is fine for
ad's and the like, but for more serious documentation stay clear of "loud"
colours. However, based on that statement, exactly who the audience is and
what the document relates too, can also have an effect on the colour
scheming. The more serious (well ok ALL law enforcement documentation is
serious) the more reason to stay conservative. Keeping to conservative
colouring yes, is boring as hell. But, you can use half-toning and create a
collage effect, to give the cover some "eye appeal".

Hope this helps, somewhat at least.
