* In Part 5 of ''Manga/JojosBizarreAdventure'' there's Leone Abbacchio. Before he became a member of one of Passione's assassination squads, he was a cop that became disillusioned by his job and began to take bribes. It came back to bite him later when one of the men he accepted a bribe from later shot and killed his partner.

** 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.)]]

* In ''LightNovel/HeavyObject'' a military unit checking ships for contraband was bribed to ignore a human trafficking ring.
** An entire unit of [[ThePoliticalOfficer Black Uniforms]] was supporting a drug war against a foreign nation. As they conduct checks for contraband, the unit could give a clean report on the drug shipments and prevent any additional searches. When one shipment was discovered by ordinary soldiers the unit planned to incinerate them along with the evidence.

* Dirty Cops are a big factor in Frank Castle becoming ComicBook/ThePunisher. The criminals who killed his family worked for the Costa family, and Frank was able to identify every one perfectly; unfortunately, the cops - at least the ones he went to - were clearly being bought by said mob. (This is also a big reason why the Costa family is no longer a presence in the Marvel New York underworld; he went after them ''first''.)

** "Family Goy": From his upstairs window, Peter shoots a gun at his Jewish neighbor Mort Goldman while he is at his mailbox (a scene emulating an infamous scene in ''SchindlersList''). Not only does Joe fail to arrest Peter, '''''HE ALSO SHOOTS HIS GUN AT MORT''''' (greeting him with a friendly hello to boot)!

* Averted in an episode of Father Ted where Ted goes off on a rant about the good old days when the police would cover the Church for any wrongdoing.
Crops up so often in Starsky & Hutch that it sometimes seems like the titular characters spend just as much time fighting off their fellow cops as they do civilian criminals. In fact, it sometimes take quite a while for a crook to realize that they're not being coy when they insist that they can't be bought, which doesn't cast a very good light on the BCPD.

* In ''VideoGame/WatchDogs'', a trio of corrupt cops are seen providing protection for the Chicago South Club's slave auction, though they warn the mobsters that they won't be able to keep the "other boys" from busting the place if the event doesn't stay quiet. Later, after busting the auction yourself and hunting down it's buyers one by one, the same three cops provide an escort for the slave ring's leader as he tries to flee the city.

See BlackmailIsSuchAnUglyWord, CutHimselfShaving, RabidCop, NobleBigotWithABadge, PrisonRape, CorruptHick, LawmanGoneBad, etc. If a cop's framed as one of these, it's PoliceBrutalityGambit. If a cop outright murders people, you've got a KillerCop. A dirty cop who gets sent to prison probably becomes a PariahPrisoner, hated by regular inmates.
