* A regional joke in Massachusetts revolves around the fact that Dunkin' Donuts (and we mean any Dunkin' Donuts) is the worst place to rob after a gun shop, to the point that, after the Boston Marathon Bombings in 2013 and the citywide manhunt and subsequent lockdown, the Dunkin' Donuts in Boston were among the ''only'' businesses that stayed open in order to accommodate all the law enforcement personnel in the area, since it was seen as a ''vital service''. A Starbucks, on the other hand, is a good target, since cops are mainly from working class backgrounds and hang out at DD, while Starbucks is seen as the place where college kids with lots of money and other snobs go. Ironically, most cops just get coffee these days and avoid the donuts.
* A joke once detailed that when a Cop goes to Hell, he must make a decision: Bullets or Donuts.
* There's also this joke:
--> '''Cop''': Excuse me sir, your eyes are bloodshot. Have you been drinking?
--> '''Driver''': Officer, your eyes are glazed over. Have you been eating donuts?
** Word to the wise, though: Don't actually say this to a cop. [[BerserkButton It won't end well.]] [[TooDumbToLive If you're indeed drunk and/or high...]]
* When a Krispy Kreme opened up in one NJ town, the mayor joked it was like having a second police station.

* Starbucks, however, is popular with UsefulNotes/{{Seattle}} police, since DD doesn't have the footprint, and Starbucks is a local company. It's also indoors, which is a good thing when it rains 9 months out of 12.

** Near the beginning of the "Disorient Express" chapter, Dooley makes several attempts to persuade [=McQueen=] that they should blow the case off and head back to the precinct house before they miss out on a free donut offer.
** In the "Police Farce" chapter, the whiteboard in the briefing room of the precinct house is covered in writing that proves on closer inspection to be the donut and coffee rota.

It should be noted that this is primarily an American/Canadian based trope, as donuts are nowhere near as popular with the police in many other countries. UsefulNotes/BritishCoppers, for example, tend to go for chips - [[SeparatedByACommonLanguage which is to say in American]], french fries - instead.

* ''Literature/AbleTeam''. Carl Lyons is offered a box of jelly donuts while investigating a homicide. Then just as he's biting into one, the police show him the crime scene photos in the hope of grossing him out. Lyons is a former LAPD cop however, [[AutopsySnackTime so takes it entirely in stride.]]
