* In ''VideoGame/EveOnline'', Concord, the space police, will punish attacks on innocent players by immediately appearing to destroy your ship, having first locked it down to prevent you moving, shooting, or even being able to target anything. In the past, it could occasionally be possible to escape from them by setting up some very unusual situations that allowed you to escape to low-security space. CCP, the developer, responded to this by updating the rules to say that escaping from Concord is officially considered an exploit no matter how you manage it, and your ship will be removed anyway. Concord always get their man, even if they have to work through the metagame to manage it.

He is often a ByTheBookCop, though some versions have a bit of CowboyCop in them. May be a SympatheticInspectorAntagonist. If he is an InspectorJavert, he will be portrayed sympathetically as a WorthyOpponent and he is only on the opposite side by an unfortunate error in the system or else because the protagonist is a VillainProtagonist. Often, because ElitesAreMoreGlamorous, this kind of Cop belongs to a famous law enforcement organization: effectively the constabulary equivalent of a BadassArmy.

* [[SympatheticInspectorAntagonist Inspector Zenigata]] from ''Characters/LupinIII'' thinks of himself this way (To be fair, he's successfully caught everyone he's gone after who ''isn't'' part of Lupin's gang. He's even caught them a couple times - getting them to ''stay'' caught, however...).

* Kojak of...''{{Series/Kojak}}'' is an idealized cop: feared in the underworld, and zealous in weeding out corruption. The only reason he hasn't been promoted to Chief is because of insubordination (and a desk jockey isn't as exciting to watch). In the TV movies, he is rewarded with his own Major Case squad.

* ''Series/BabylonFive'': Security Chief Michael Garibaldi, formerly of Mars. His past isn't that important, and he prefers not to talk about it, anyway. The Mars colony is considered to be the most dangerous place in the Earth Alliance--doubtless his instincts as a detective were honed on Mars before he was reassigned to [=B5=]. (He swore never to return to that planet after getting shot at a few times.)

* Jack Valentine in ''Film/LordOfWar'' spends more than a decade chasing ArmsDealer Yuri Orlov, doing it all [[ByTheBookCop by the book]] despite Yuri using all sorts of tricky and schemes to stay one step ahead of the law. After all that time and effort, Valentine finally catches Yuri... [[spoiler:and Yuri has a GetOutOfJailFreeCard due to his [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveConnections connections]] with the US government.]]

* Tuvok in ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'', as the ship's security officer, occasionally conducts or assists in investigations those times that someone commits a crime aboard ship or one of his crewmates gets [[ClearMyName falsely accused of a crime]] by aliens.

* Tuvok in ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'', as the ship's security officer, occasionally conducts or assists in investigations those times that someone commits a crime aboard ship or one of his crewmates gets [[ClearMyName falsely accused of a crime]] by aliens. In one episode he even works out that the perpetrator of a series of crimes is himself being mind controlled and having the memories wiped afterwards and promptly relieves ''himself'' of duty and informs the rest of the command staff so they can place him under arrest while they figure out who's actually responsible.
