** In one episode of ''[=SVU=]'', Stabler goes undercover as a corrupt customs official (so ''kind of'' a cop) to get in good with a smuggler in the illegal wildlife trade.

* ''TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'': just about any Hold Guard could be dirty since, with the right perks and quests completed, you can persuade or bribe them into looking the other way when you commit a crime or inform them that you're a member of a particular group (say, the Thieves' Guild), but special mention goes to the guards in Markarth (who frame you for a murder and throw you in maximum security prison as part of a quest) and Riften (whose first interaction with you is to try and shake you down).

* Downplayed by Mike from ''Series/BreakingBad'' and ''Series/BetterCallSaul''. While he took money from drug busts when he was still a cop, he claims to have only done it to prevent his partners from thinking he wouldn't have their backs. Unfortunately for his son, Matt, he wasn't like his father. [[spoiler: This leads to Matt being killed when his partners believe that he is going to report them for corruption.]]

* It tends to be forgotten now that the ''MontyPython'' sketch about London gangsters The Pirhana Brothers was intended to be biting satire on the way the Krays and the Richardsons got away with it for so long. The two family crime syndicates in London were busted not so much by police action as by investigative reporting forcing the Met to do something. Not only the incompetence but the corruption of the Metropolitan Police was mercilessly exposed.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Series/BlueBloods'':
**Season 1 has the Blue Templar, a ring of crooked cops who were engaged in murder, narcotics trafficking, and money laundering. Their leader Sonny Malevski also killed Commissioner Frank Reagan's son Joe when he began to infiltrate them.
**In the season 2 episode "Critical Condition," the leader of a botched bank robbery turned hostage situation is Billy Flood, an ex-cop from a special unit that Frank ran in the 1990s.
**In "Framed," Danny is investigating a bookie who has his clients assaulted when they're late paying him. Right as Danny's about to get a warrant to raid the bookie's house in search of a black book that will reveal a list of all the clients who owe him money, he's pulled over and busted for drug possession. It's obvious to the entire Reagan family the drugs were planted. Furthermore, Jamie finds that a baker Danny stopped at right beforehand[[note]]as he'd been reminded by Erin and by Linda repeatedly to do so[[/note]] seems to have been intimidated into lying about Danny's whereabouts. As the investigation turns out, an Internal Affairs captain that had previously investigated Danny for a friendly-fire incident was among those who would have been outed as owing money to the bookie when the black book turned up. He framed Danny to get him out of the way, even proceeding to steal Danny's off-duty pistol to kill the bookie.

** Blüdhaven was even worse than Gotham. Criminals there who ''didn't'' share the profits from their crimes with the police were murdered. The police chief placed a bounty on Nightwing's head. The only truly honest cop -- technically -- in Bludhaven was Nightwing himself, who, in his Dick Grayson identity, joined the force in order to bring it down. [[spoiler:(The city was eventually destroyed when the Secret Society of Super-Villains dumped the monstrous Chemo into the place; Nightwing, Robin, and Batgirl survived because they were lucky enough to be out of town at the time, but pretty much every other resident wasn't so lucky, and the fates of other Blüdhaven-based heroes such as Tarantula are unknown.)]]
