* In Brazil, during the 80s, policemen were nicknamed "Coxinhas" (A Brazilian chicken croquette), since a ''coxinha'' was one of the few hings their small meal tickets would afford. Today, "Coxinha" is no more used to refer to cops, becoming a pejorative term used by the left-wing to insult rich and middle class conservatives or just right-wingers in general.

* In ''Videogame/SpyFox 3: Operation Ozone'', Stanley Seagull will give you the tapioca needed to make the [[PlotCoupon Secret Donut XY]] if you give him the donut he wants. However, there is a cop in the donut shop that will eat any donut you order. You have to distract him by opening [[LaughTrack a can of laughter]] outside the shop and tricking him into investigating a laugh riot outside.

* In Clare, Michigan, a police station bought and run a donut shop that was on the verge of closing down. They called it "Cops & Doughnuts". [[http://www.copsdoughnuts.com/ Link]]

* In Clare, Michigan, Michigan (a quaint little farm town about a police station hundred miles north of the state capital), the town bakery, which had been in business since 1896, was in danger of closing. The Clare Police Department - all nine of them - banded together and bought the bakery, and run a donut shop that was on renamed the verge of closing down. They called it joint enterprise "Cops & Doughnuts". [[http://www.copsdoughnuts.com/ Link]]Link]] They've now opened several more "precinct houses" in Mid-Michigan, and branched out into coffee (which is locally roasted and excellent quality), as well as T-shirts and other merchandise, with such classic sayings as "Don't Glaze Me, Bro" and "Handcuffs and Cream Puffs." The entire enterprise is run as a not-for-profit, which returns the proceeds to all manner of community events and law enforcement charities.

In fiction, it's much more probable that you'll see a cop eating a donut than anyone else, except for [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Homer Simpson]]. The cop guarding your jail cell will be dunking their donut with pink frosting in their cup of coffee. The cop in the stakeout will have a half-empty box of donuts in their car. When taking a break from driving, they're hanging out at the donut shop.

In more humorous displays, the cop might react to a donut as Franchise/ScoobyDoo would to a scooby snack. It might be the reason for them to have joined the force. Heck, in fact, "Officer Donut" is a casual insult for a cop. In fact, they could be so obsessed, they might be [[FoodAsBribe bribed to do anything for donuts]].

The reasons for this are actually not all insulting. Cops will usually [[MustHaveCaffeine consume lots of coffee]], because it's necessary for them to stay awake during the night, and the donut is usually a sweet to dunk in the coffee or to remove its bitter aftertaste, which MakesSenseInContext. Donuts are also ready-made and stored in boxes - a good food to store in patrol cars for a long time, as they don't melt or get inedible when old (depending on the recipe, some may only be edible for a few hours). They also tend to be both filling and cheap, and as donut shops tend to open early, for a while they were among the few places open for someone working the graveyard shift. Donut shops also tend to give out free donuts to law enforcement, partly as a public service and partly to encourage cops to hang around (and robbers to stay away).[[note]]This is illegal in some jurisdictions, as it is considered a form of bribery.[[/note]]

As donuts are fattening sweets, the cop munching them will usually be a [[AcceptableTargets fat]], lazy, moustached ObstructiveBureaucrat. (Strangely, they never get glaze or frosting in their mustache...)
