* The Department of Justice scathing reports on police departments are pretty depressing. Including reports about the aforementioned [[ https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/justice-department-announces-findings-investigation-chicago-police-department Chicago PD]].

* ''All'' the cops in ''Film/SuperTroopers'', with the grand exception Ursula, fit this trope. The Highway cops cover incompetent, usually too busy goofing off, and playing games to do their jobs right. The Locals fills out bad. Beside total assheads, they're [[spoiler:running protection for a drug running ring]].

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Shadowrun}}'' this trope is commonplace. Thanks to [[LawEnforcementInc many police forces worldwide being privatized]] and given incentive to turn a profit and nothing else, police in low-income areas tend to be staffed by the worst the precinct has to offer. Corruption and PoliceBrutality are common, and many police officers hold [[FantasticRacism metahuman prejudice]] that gets overlooked as long as their employers do not complain. And then there are the [=CorpSec=] outfits, which supply the [[MegaCorps megas]] with in-house security, which makes the public police look professional by comparison.

Added DiffLines:

* Most of Cole Phelps' partners in ''VideoGame/LANoire'' fall into this: Rusty Galloway is an alcoholic, [[RabidCop violently aggressive]] {{jerkass}}, Roy Earle is an ''extremely'' DirtyCop, and Herschel Biggs is an apathetic burnout who [[ShellShockedVeteran never got over his PTSD from World War I.]] Only Stefan Bekowsky is an honest and hard-working cop, but even he's dismissed by Earle as a "pushover."

* The London precinct in ''Film/HotFuzz'' actually transfers their one good cop so he doesn't make them look bad. [[spoiler:They try to get him back in the end because without him the numbers are terrible.]] It wasn't so much a matter of them being incompetent, as him being super-competent. The cops in Sandford village however definitely qualify for this trope. [[spoiler:At least until they TookALevelInBadass]]
