A jitte is a specialized weapon that was used by police in Edo period Japan. In English-language sources, it is sometimes incorrectly spelled jutte.

In Edo period Japan the jutte was a substitute for a badge and represented someone on official business and was carried by all levels of police officers including high-ranking samurai police officials and low-rank samurai law enforcement officers (called okappiki or doshin).Other high-ranking samurai officials carried a jutte as a badge of office, including hotel, rice and grain inspectors (aratame).

The jutte is the subject of the Japanese martial art of jutte jutsu.
