* In ''Series/BabylonBerlin'', Bruno WOlter is the resident DirtyCop (not that the rest of the force a lot better), but also shown to be a loving husband to his senile wife.

* Dets. Stabler and Tutuola from ''Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit'', while not especially racist or sexist, tend to be...less than fans of the GLBT community.

* Similarly, the black drill sergeant Calhoun from the HBO film ''Film/FirstTimeFelon'' is arguably given a SympatheticPOV. He despises the black juvenile felons because he hates that when "white people look at me, they see you instead...I love black people, but I ''hate'' niggers." He hates the stereotypes that they help perpetuate of decent black people like him. He despises the felons so much he intentionally undermines their rehabilitation by provoking them to hit him. He even goes as far to say "I'm never gonna let you get released back on the streets! I'm gonna lock up your children, and their children's children!" The character can definitely be interpreted and dissected in many different ways.

* ''Series/MurdochMysteries'': Especially the early seasons often set up a dichotomy between conservative (''mildly'' racist, homophobic, sexist, etc.) Inspector Brackenreid on the one side, and progressive, liberal Dr. Ogden on the other, with Detective Murdoch in the middle. Though over the years, Brackenreid's attitude has improved a lot. Also, even Murdoch himself, for all that he's very polite and by instict [[Idealhero always leans to the side of least human misery]], was initially judgmental about homosexuality and women who had abortions, because he couldn't square these things with his Catholic faith. But he got over both prejudices quickly enough once faced with people who were actually affected.

Added DiffLines:

* For reasons of DeliberateValuesDissonance, ''Series/RipperStreet'' has Bennet Drake, who is somewhat homophobic (he gets better). And of course lots of other, minor police characters who are varying levels of racist or sexist. This serves to emphazise how much ahead of his time Inspector Reid (and Jackson) is on most social issues.

* ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'': Despite his overt hostility towards the token bunny protagonist Judy Hopps who was put on the police force for political reasons, Chief Bogo genuinely cares about helping the [[FunnyAnimals animals]] of Zootopia. [[spoiler: The real twist is that Judy herself is carrying some pretty bigoted ideas about predators herself.]]

* In the later Literature/WheelOfTime books, some of the [[DoesNotLikeMen Red Ajah]] members are portrayed more like this, viewing men (and male channelers) more sympathetically than the Reds portrayed earlier in the series (while still not necessarily ''liking'' them), [[spoiler: especially after Saidin is cleansed, and the Red Ajah's entire purpose needs to be reevaluated.]]
