* The military equivalent showed up in TheDCU, when The Shield (an Army SuperSoldier) and Magog (Marine corporal turned emissary of one of the Old Gods) ended up on the same mission together. They spent just as much time sniping at each other's respective branches as they did fighting the main threat.

** Season 5 features a straight version: the FBI expressed a willingness to take on a ''massive'' drug/murder investigation (involving the discovery of the bodies of ''22'' murder victims in vacant homes, all killed by the same drug gang), but only if the Baltimore State's Attorney (that's "prosecutor") would hand over the prosecution of corrupt State Senator Clay Davis to the United States Attorney (that's "federal prosecutor"). There are all kinds of good reasons to do this--the Baltimore City Police ''can't'' proceed with the drug/murder investigation owing to a massive shortfall in the city school budget that could only be plugged by taking funds from every other city agency, including the police, plus a Baltimore City jury is likely to be heavily Black and regard Davis as a fighter for the Black community (a fact Davis would be bound to exploit to the hilt), while a federal prosecution would feature a jury drawn from the whole State of Maryland and thus consist primarily of people unfamiliar with Davis and likely to be unimpressed by his rhetoric. The State's Attorney shuts down this deal: he wants to take Davis down personally so he can run for Mayor after the present one runs for Governor, and the Mayor backs him because the US Attorney is a Republican political appointee trying to sabotage the Democratic majority in the Maryland Senate.

* ''Series/TheWire'' has a reverse of the standard version. One law enforcement jurisdiction will often try to foist murder cases onto another to avoid having their numbers go down when the case inevitably goes unsolved. The city police actually go ''to'' the FBI, begging for their assistance in busting criminals or solving crimes, but the Feds usually turn them down due to their new, mandated focus on terrorism.

* An episode of ''Series/ATouchOfFrost'' has David Jason's Inspector Frost (Britain's answer to Columbo) seeking to investigate a suspected murder on an Army base. Frost is hindered and frustrated by the Royal Military Police (who at the time of screening were following the old principle of demarcation between British civilian and military authorities: if a serious crime happened on a military base, it was for the RMP to investigate and no business of the civilian cops, whose remit began at the barracks gates). Frost sees how amateurish and incompetent the Army cops are at investigating murder, and gets involved anyway: as he uncovers skullduggery, financial corruption, bullying, illegal sale of military equipment, et c, the Army cops eventually realise they're all on the same team. Eventually.

* A strange subversion of this exists in the West Bank/Palestinian Territory, as Israeli citizens (regardless of race or religion) fall under Israeli law, while the Palestinians who are not citizens are under martial law, especially in zones B and C. Things are kept so separate that if an Israeli soldier actually witnesses a citizen commit a crime against a Palestinian in the territory, that soldier cannot arrest the citizen but must call the police.

Evidence exists to suggest a blind eye is very often turned by IDF and police in these circumstances.[[/note]]

* ''Series/KamenRiderDrive'': In the ''Drive Saga: Kamen Rider Chaser'' movie, a corpse is found sprawled across the border between Tokyo and Futo. Both cities' police departments want to take charge of the investigation, since they suspect that the victim had something to do with their respective city's super-criminals (Roidmudes and Dopants respectively), which leads to [[TheHero Shinnosuke]] having to deal with Futo's stern and stoic [[Series/KamenRiderDouble Detective Ryu Terui]]. [[spoiler:It turns out that both groups are right -- the perp is a Dopant who stole a [[TransformationTrinket Gaia Memory]], and on top of that he's only pretending to be dead. When he springs to life and starts running amok, the heroes transform into their Rider gear and kick butt together.]]
