* Subverted in Liz Williams' Inspector Chen novel ''Snake Agent''. About halfway through, Chen has a meeting with DaChief, who tells him explicitly that he is ''not'' going to take Chen off the case, because he knows full well that Chen is the only person able and willing to handle it. (The scene also features Chen uttering the words "Go to Hell, sir" -- as a literal and truthful response to the question "What do you intend to do next?")

Added DiffLines:
* In ''Literature/ApparatusInfernum'', the powers that be want a quicker result than the protagonists are providing, and since Mikani isn't inclined to be taken off the case quietly, Gunwood orders him to take a few days off (upgraded to a week thanks to Mikani not knowing when to keep quiet). They aren't made to ''literally'' hand over their badges, but it plays out much the same.

* Happens in ''{{Miss Congeniality}}'' when Gracie correctly hypothesizes that [[spoiler:The original threat wasn't from the recently caught "The Citizen" but a copycat, and wants to investigate Cathy Morningside.]] {{Da Chief}} wants to hear nothing of it and tells her she can only stay as a civilian, prompting her to turn in her badge and sidearm.

* In the DaleBrown novel ''Warrior Class'', Terrill Samson asks Patrick [=McLanahan=] and David Luger to resign after [[NoOneGetsLeftBehind they take part in a rescue mission]] against his orders. * The Isaacsons in ''TheAlienist'' are on a "special assignment" leave from the NYPD. * In ''RiversOfLondon'' after [[spoiler:Detective Chief Inspector Nightingale is shot]], Grant is put on suspension and [[spoiler:Tyburn]] moves quickly to try and get him fired and the magical department shut down. The Commissioner doing the firing becoming one of those possessed and turned into a rioter probably helped get this fixed.

* DCI Jack Spratt of Creator/JasperFforde's ''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.
