* Arguably the Chief in the ''WesternAnimation/WhereOnEarthIsCarmenSandiego'' cartoon. A few episodes show him to have at one point had a robot body (which he describes as 'useless') and was Carmen's partner before she had a face heel turn.

Added DiffLines:

* The Creator/AlanDeanFoster novel 'Greenthieves' deals with a detective who's paired with a singularly perverted 'humaniform' android, as well as a snarky ([[AndIMustScream if only in his mind]]) Minder, basically a floating, orb-shaped AI.

* ''{{Series/Almost Human}}'' has Karl Urban teaming up with a {{Main/Super Prototype}} android partner. It's either law or department policy that ''all'' detectives must have an android partner, though most of them prefer the emotionless MX line.

Added DiffLines:

* Any Autobot or Decepticon in ''Franchise/TheTransformers'' with a police vehicle as their alt-mode tends to be some form of cop, though the exact nature varies. Prowl, for example, is a rabidly ByTheBookCop [[spoiler: at least before he started suffering SanitySlippage]] while Streetwise tends to be portrayed as more of a CowboyCop.
