If it is something that will put the cop or department in a bad light, they will not help. But your best bet is to just ask.
You don't. They have better things to do with their lives then to play games.
That's a good way to get arrested for criminal mischief.
You simply ask, if your polite about it, the worse they can do is say no. Although if they say yes they could lose their job and all their credibility (meaning they can never be a cop again) best bet would be to just go buy a cop costume
