** Particularly bad in Italy, where there are NINE EIGHT different police forces. Things are regulated this way:



*** The ''Carabinieri'' (gendarmerie and military police) have jurisdiction if the perpetrator is a member of the armed forces or the crime involves organized crime, terrorism (they have an anti-terrorism branch for this), crimes at sea, drugs or ''[[SeriousBusiness food sophistication]]'', or there's just need for serious firepower (they're part of the armed forces, after all, their standard equipment includes assault rifles and ''[[MoreDakka squad automatic weapons]]'', and if things go south they also have larger machine guns and sniper rifles).

*** The State Forestry Department deals with crimes against the environment or happening in national parks and forests.

* This is a large part of what ultimately gets Ramba Ral killed in ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam''. He's a member of Dozle Zabi's Space Attack Force but is sent to Earth on a special mission to destroy the Gundam in order to avenge Garma Zabi's death. The Earth Attack Force commander M'Quve doesn't like having one of Dozle's boys playing around in his back yard and continually refuses Ramba Ral's requests for supplies and support, resulting in his running battles with the White Base slowly whittling away his forces until he finds himself in the unenviable position of trying to fight them on foot.
** To demonstrate what a monumental cockup this is, virtually every Gihren's Greed game allows Supreme Commander Gihren Zabi to get involved and personally order Ral's resupply. Ral quickly captures the White Base, Guntank and Guncannon, though the Gundam itself escapes.

** Asari Justicars are fully committed to upholding an ancient and strict Code that allows for no leniency. Asari law enforcement is obligated to stand aside if one shows up but gets very worried as there's a good chance that anyone involved in a crime, no matter how small, will end up dead very soon, which tends to be a diplomatic nightmare when the person in question is anything other than another asari. In fact, the Justicars are one of the two groups that were used as a basis for the Spectres.

On Ilium, meanwhile, the local authorities have to arrest a justicar who's on mission to enforce offworld laws, while the justicar is obligated to fight her way free after one day.

* Happens in the anime version of '''''Manga/SailorMoon''''', of all places: as the third season BigBad comes from outside the Solar System, the Outer Senshi declare that Sailor Moon and the Inners should stay out of their way, as in the Silver Millennium they were the ones dealing with enemies from outside. The Outers' method of dispatching youma are akin to Black Ops/ Wetwork operatives. Gets a veneer of InsaneTrollLogic when you remember that Sailor Venus and Sailor Moon, being respectively the military ''supreme commander'' and the reincarnation of the ''last surviving member of the Silver Millennium royal family'', technically are those who they're supposed to answer to...

Occasionally, the normal effect is inverted: the friction lies in everyone trying to shove off responsibility, if any part of the investigation is likely to be unduly burdensome.

* In the ''{{Champions}}'' universe the two U.S. government anti-supervillain agencies PRIMUS and SAT have been known to squabble over who's in charge of investigating or dealing with supercrimes. Likewise, conservative elements in the U.S government resented the way UNTIL charged around the U.S. and created SAT specifically so the U.S. could handle its own super-problems.

* In ''Fanfiction/ChrysalisVisitsTheHague'', there is quite a lot of it going on between the UN (investigating into the matter on behalf of the International Criminal Court) and the Equestrian crown (who take the matter ''very'' personally and thus take offence to the fact human investigators are roaming around Equestria to begin with).
