* The [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] Comicbook/{{Starman}} had Woodley Allen of the FBI (the uncle of his LoveInterest) and Inspector Bailey, as well as Billy O'Dare (although, as a beat officer, he was more of a {{sidekick}}). His son, the [[TheModernAgeOfComicBooks Modern Age]] Comicbook/{{Starman}} had O'Dare's son, Clarence, the police department's official Superhero Liason Officer (and eventually Comissioner), and his four siblings.

* Invoked and deconstructed in ''WesternAnimation/TheLegoBatmanMovie''. While Trope Namer Commissioner "[[FreezeFrameBonus Jim]]" does briefly appear, his daughter, Barbara Gordon, is the GCPD chief for most of the movie, and one of the first things she does as chief is point out that the police don't actually do anything besides press the Batsignal button, and that Batman doesn't actually work within the law or reduce crime in any meaningful way. She then proposes that they work ''with'' Batman to actually capture the criminals instead of letting them go free. Of course, the point is made moot when Joker and the rest of his rogues gallery turn themselves in, and Gordon (who, remember, is chief of police) goes back to doing other police things, leaving Batman without villains or a Commissioner Gordon.

* For '' ComicBook/{{Excalibur}}'' there was Inspector Dai Thomas. His relationship with superheroes was extremely strained due to the death of his wife in the wreckage of a super-fight (he nearly crossed the line to InspectorJavert) but in the end did come to find some respect for Captain Britain.

* In mainstream continuity Comicbook/{{Spider-Man}} has had a whole parade of police liaisons. The most famous are probably Jean [=DeWolff=] and George Stacy. They're both dead now. The closest fit post-BND is Captain Watanabe, who is GenreSavvy enough to give Spidey the benefit of the doubt when it looks like he's killed someone in an issue where several supposedly dead people are reappearing (naturally, Mysterio was behind it all).

** Add in Chief O'Hara, as well. Their reaction during the one time Batman was unavailable due to a commitment Bruce Wayne had is too funny to believe.
