** In ''[[VideoGame/HitmanAbsolution Absolution]]'', pretty much the entire sheriff's department of Hope, South Dakota, including the sheriff, Clive Skurky, is on the take from [[BigBad Blake Dexter]]. Also, in some of the Chicago levels, police officers work for the bad guys in some capacity.

Also, in some of the Chicago levels, police officers work for the bad guys in some capacity. Even the ones that weren't, their behavior and attitude would earn them at the very least a reproachful reaction from their colleagues in any real police force.

* In ''WesternAnimation/ScaryLarry'', the Insomniac babies run a bar and get harassed by the mob for protection money, so they call the police. But the police threaten to punish them for ridiculous infractions unless they give them 50% of their profits.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/AsianSaga'': In ''Noble House'', it's mentioned that pretty much the entire HKPD is on the take. The cake, however, goes to the Chief Inspectors who are also members of [[TheTriadsAndTheTongs a criminal triad that controls the vice trade in northern Hong Kong.]] The officer assigned to investigate is incensed that the higher-ups are taking triad money, but isn't really upset that the beat cops do it, since their salaries are so low they can barely support themselves.

* ''Stander'' is the biopic of a South African cop during {{the apartheid era}}, who after participating in the crackdown on the Soweto uprising in 1976 during which he kills an unarmed young black man, becomes disgusted with himself and his society. Turning on them, he begins to rob banks while the rest of the force is off enforcing the apartheid laws, before he gets caught, then breaks out of prison and flees to the US. This is a {{historical villain downgrade}} as the real Stander wasn't even present during the incidents at Soweto where black protesters were killed, and may have just claimed this to garner sympathy. [[spoiler: It's also implied in the film he chooses {{suicide by cop}} in the end (at the hands of a black American officer) as a form of penance, while in real life it was an accidental discharge during a struggle over a gun.]]

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/TheDeuce'' is about the BigRottenApple of Times Square in 1971. As such, police corruption is rampant. Just about all beat cops are in the pocket of the mob and collect protection money from businesses. A new captain in the 14th precinct, however, arrives with the intention of cleaning house.

* One ''WebOriginal/PolandBall'' strip has Polandball volunteer to participate ''WebVideo/BuzzfeedUnsolved'' discusses this trope frequently in a GoodCopBadCop interrogation by Germanyball, the True Crime seasons, since he it's sometimes the reason why cases are unsolved in the first place. This was particularly notable in the Sodder Children episode, where the authorities located only a few miles away showed up hours after the house was set on fire, and in the episode about the Keddie Cabin Massacre, where it has a lot of experience with it. So when he often been theorized that the authorities were covering something up, due to the sheer negligence that was shown to the case.
