* In a sci-fi comedy ''Arm of the Law'' by Creator/HarryHarrison, an android police officer is assigned to a police station of BadCopIncompetentCop types in a WretchedHive on Mars. He promptly arrests the local crime boss for an outstanding warrant, forcing the other officers to help him clean up the town (which the android does most efficiently) because they're afraid the crime boss [[YouHaveFailedMe will have them tortured and killed once he gets out of jail]].

* Played straight in ''ComicBook/{{Copperhead}}'' by new Sheriff Clara Bronson. The town has a problem with corruption from the mine owner commiserating with the local government, and criminals and the Natives are constantly preying on the weak.

A new person (or an old inhabitant returning after years away) comes to a town suffering from lawlessness and corruption. He or she is appointed to a position of responsibility, such as TheSheriff, and proceeds to reduce crime, establish the rule of law, and topple the corrupt powers that kept the town from prospering.
