** Herc and Carver start the show as this. They're briefly suspected by Daniels of stealing evidence money when they seize drug money from Wee-Bey and some of it goes missing. Then they actually steal money during a raid on a stash house in the wake of Kima's shooting. Come season 4, Carver greatly cleans up his act and matures. Herc? Not so much.
** Eddie Walker is a Western District patrolman and is incredibly relentless in use of PoliceBrutality.
** Dwight Tilghman is a prison guard who routinely brutalizes Wee-Bey Brice because Wee-Bey killed a cousin of his. He also trafficks drugs into the prison. Avon Barksdale and Stringer Bell conspire to frame him for trafficking tainted drugs into the jail.

* In ''Series/BlueBloods'':
** Danny Reagan is a borderline case. He's not the "plant evidence" or "kill unarmed criminals" type, but he ''has' done illegal things that in real life would get him swiftly terminated from the NYPD, and has faced [[KarmaHoudini little comeuppance for his behavior]]. Examples include ''intentionally'' stopping a medical tube for an old man because he ''thought'' he had information, threatening to put a bullet in the back of a robber's head -- ''when the said robber was cuffed and unarmed'', and putting a suspect in the trunk of his car and driving like crazy to get said suspect to talk. And the list goes on.
** 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.
** Frank loathes dirty cops as a whole, considering them a disgrace to good police in general and the NYPD as a whole, due to the damage they do to public trust, and of course what the Blue Templar did to Joe. What's notable is how low-key he is about it. He doesn't raise his voice and his expression barely changes even though it's abundantly clear how furious he is. When he confronted the ones responsible for Joe's death at the end of the first season, it's almost terrifying how calm he looks during the entire exchange. He only loses his cool for a moment when he knocks some things off the top of a cabinet, which is also one of the few times he raises his voice. He's not shouting either, he raises it the way people do when they want to make sure they're heard.
** From season 1's "After Hours," there's Jimmy Burke, Frank's partner while stationed at the 27th Precinct who took a bullet for him. He was eventually promoted to Inspector and placed in command of the 15th Precinct. When he is up for a promotion to Deputy Chief as the Deputy Commander of Patrol Borough Manhattan South, Erin uncovers that Jimmy has been juking his precinct's COMPSTATS, misreporting felonies as misdemeanors to artificially lower the crime rates. After meeting with Jimmy, Frank allows him to retire rather than face demotion to Captain and reassignment to the 128th Precinct in Staten Island.
** 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 "Thanksgiving," Sgt. Renzulli is revealed to be betting on horses on the side, and owes about $10,000 to his bookie. After hearing about it from Jamie, Frank bails Renzulli out but makes clear it's a one-time offer.
** 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.



* In ''Series/{{Daredevil 2015}}'', practically half of the cops of the NYPD's 15th Precinct are in Wilson Fisk's pocket. Not only does Fisk use them to kill off associates who have become liabilities (and ensure no NYPD investigations are opened into his activities), but they're so dirty that they're willing to actively murder fellow officers who aren't on the take or who have become liabilities themselves. In a touch of irony, it is one of these corrupt cops, Detective Carl Hoffman, guilt-ridden over being forced to kill his partner and best friend Detective Christian Blake on Fisk's orders, who is responsible for giving up information that allows the FBI to apprehend Fisk and all of his top associates.
* In ''Series/LukeCage2016'', Cornell "Cottonmouth" Stokes has a couple of NYPD cops in his pocket, including Misty Knight's partner Rafael Scarfe, and Misty's shift lieutenant.
