* CreatorsPet: Frank. He's always right about everything, no matter what the circumstance and never seems particularly interested in listening to people who have differing opinions about more controversial police policy --- and the writers do everything in their power to make those people -- i.e. Mayor Poole always in the wrong no matter what.

** [[FauxAffablyEvil Santana]], from season 3's final two episodes ''The Bitter End'' and ''This Way Out'', is a vicious gang leader of the Los Lordes gang. He and his gang are responsible for turning the Bitterman projects into a hellhole and hounding the residents, making them scared for their lives to the point that one young mother [[DrivenToSuicide commits suicide]] with her son to get away from him. After her death and Detective Danny Reagan's attempts to take them down, he declares war on the police department and [[CopKiller arranges for ambushes]], one of which kills Jamie's partner and friend Vinny. He later takes advantage of a mentally-impaired man by having him shoot Mayor Poole by having him think it would be a harmless prank. The shooting would leave Poole paralyzed and in a wheelchair for the rest of his life. After his girlfriend is arrested with his drugs, he panics and puts out a failed hit on her in prison. Santana shows that under his calm and collected demeanor is someone who cares only about himself and would step on anyone who gets in his way.

** [[TheMafiya Yuri Denko]], from season 2's "Working Girls", is a ruthless ArmsDealer who Erin is prosecuting. A cold-blooded sadist who has no problem executing a man's wife in front of him in their living room over a business dispute. He would later threaten the man's children in a courtroom outburst to scare him into not testifying but still has him killed anyway after the threats scare him into running. He then puts out a hit on the surviving witness and hounds her mercilessly even going so far as going after her grandmother back in Russia as well. A sociopath of the highest order, he would step on anyone who gets in his way.

** The show's rather flippant attitude towards civil rights is very divisive in the light of the troubling number of controversial deaths surrounding police and African Americans. It doesn't help that the main civil rights spokesman on the show - Rev. Potter is corrupt and usually has to resort to cliche straw arguments fabricating confrontations in order to continue his war on the NYPD, or that the show seems to support real life controversial methods like "Stop and Frisk" (which InUniverse Frank only agreed to stop supporting ''after'' Jamie pointed out that many cops were using it as a crutch), or an having entire episode dealing with the "Blue Wall of Silence" while still having all InUniverse critics of the police be obnoxious straw men of whom Potter is the most recurring.

* ReplacementScrappy: The New Mayor in Season 8, who's just the latest in a long line of left-leaning city officials whose sole narrative purpose is to disagree with certain police policies and be proven wrong by Frank; the fact she's more abrasive than Mayor Poole is, makes you wonder if the writers did this just to make a point.

** It gets worse in Season Six, with an entire episode dedicated to defending the very controversial Broken Window policy (even Jaimie agrees with it) - and per usual the black councilwoman who complains about it (played by Whoopi Goldberg) is portrayed as unsympathetically as possible.
