Most people would consider the transition from prosecutor to police officer a step down, but when you're talking about actress Angie Harmon, who went from playing A.D.A. Abbie Carmichael on Law & Order (1998-2001) to starring in Rizzoli & Isles as Detective Jane Rizzoli since 2010, it's clearly a good look.

Not only has Harmon found success in a leading role, but she's also increased by one the number of hot TV cops who anybody would love being frisked and cuffed by. The lady law enforcement fantasy is clearly not ours alone, as networks have flooded programming with fine crime fighters over the years. To celebrate Angie Harmon's 40th birthday, Complex counts down the best of them. A note of caution: Images of The 50 Hottest Female Cops on TV are arresting.
