* Averted in an episode of ''FatherTed'' 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 ''Series/StarskyAndHutch'' 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.

* It becomes quickly clear in ''Film/NationalSecurity'' that there are corrupt cops in the LAPD, who are working with the warehouse robbers. The protagonists initially suspect Hank's old Lieutenant Washington, although Earl doesn't believe it, as he thinks that only white cops can be corrupt. [[spoiler:In fact, the corrupt cop is Detective {=McDuff=}, along with the fake SWAT team at the end]]. There is a scene earlier in the film, where a random black lady jokes that the entire LAPD is corrupt.

* Sgt. Voight of ''Series/ChicagoPD'' supposedly is. But it's also been indicated that he's heavily involved with Internal Affairs and may simply be pretending.

* Chief Wayne Unser from ''SonsOfAnarchy'' is a sympathetic version of this. He helps out the local criminal motorcycle club and in return they provide protection for his trucking business. Unlike most examples of this trope, however, he does it because he believes the Sons are better for the town of Charming than the other gangs who would take their place if they were to disappear.

* ''ComicBook/RicHochet''had its fair share of corrupt policemen. [[spoiler:The very first villain of the series, Chameleon, was one.
