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.

* Arguably the Chief in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Where on Earth is Carmen Sandiego}}'' 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:

* 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.

* In ''[[VideoGame/{{Fallout4}} Fallout 4]]'', Nick Valentine is ''both'': He's a (self-aware) [[FlawedPrototype old-model]] synth who has the neural copy of a pre-war police officer, and has a hard-boiled film-noir style detective persona (and a [[UncannyValley significant amount of missing skin coverings]]).

[[folder: Comics ]]
* The comic ''TheSurrogates'' is definitely noir and cyberpunk, as well as the movie adaptation.
* ''Comicbook/{{Fables}}'' has the uneasy alliance between the imperial guard and the brothers of the sacred grove (not technically robots, but magically-animated puppets with many robot-like mannerisms).
* In ''TopTen'', android cop Joe Pi has to deal with several cyber-phobic colleagues, including his new partner Irma Geddon.
* The premise of ''{{Darkminds}}'' has detective Nagawa paired up with android Akane Nakiko (well, officially she's a cyborg, but it's more a matter of being an android with some biological components) to solve the "Paradox" murders [[spoiler:which turn out to have been purpetrated by one of Nakiko's prototypes]].
