* DCI Jack Spratt of Creator/JasperFforde's ''Literature/NurseryCrime'' series is stated in the book-within-a-book ''Bumper Book of Berkshire Records'' to have been suspended over 262 times in his career, only one of which led to higher action (a reprimand). This is mainly because both he and his supervisor are GenreSavvy, and his supervisor makes a point of suspending him at least once per case more for dramatic effect than anything else.

* Played straight in ''Film/{{Showtime}}'', after the two protagonists (who are forced to be part of a cop reality show) cause a lot of damage to the city, DaChief (normally, a nice guy) tells one of them (a patrolman) that he's no longer a TV detective and is back on patrol. The other cop (played by RobertDeNiro) is suspended. Averted in that, when he asks if the chief wants his badge, the guy just tells him to get out of his office. Also, they don't immediately start following up on the case. Only when they see the latest episode of the show that they notice something strange that gives them a clue.
