Law Enforcement in Supernatural

"Since when have the Feds started tracking zombie activity?"
- State Trooper Jack in "Remember The Titans" (S08, Ep16)

While Sam and Dean frequently imitate law enforcement agents ranging from Park Rangers to Homeland Security, they also frequently find themselves in trouble with the law. Dean was first taken into custody during the Pilot, and this will not be the last time one of the Winchesters brothers is in handcuffs. The brothers usually escape the long arm of the law fairly easily, but some law enforcement officers end up being worthy foes or valued allies.

  • Agent Scully: Most of the law enforcement agents utilize mundane explanations for the deaths and other strange events which occur.
    Sheriff in "Bloodlust" (S02, Ep03): Because there's no such thing as cattle mutilation. Cow drops, leave it in the sun... Within 48 hours the bloat will split it open so clean it's just about surgical. The bodily fluids fall down into the ground and get soaked up because that's what gravity does... But hey, it could be Satan.
  • Bavarian Fire Drill: Usually the local police simply accept Sam and Dean as FBI Agents after they flash their fake badges.
    Deputy in "Southern Comfort" (S08, Ep06): First a Texas Ranger, now you guys?
  • Demonization: Police officers tend to blame the same Acceptable Targets when something odd happens.
    Detective Glass in "Hunteri Heroici" (S08, Ep08): A lot of people are thinking drugs, Agent Nash. An ass-load of drugs.
    Sheriff Dietrich in "Monster Movie" (S04, Ep05): Yeah you got me. I mean this killer's some kind of grade A wacko right? I mean some Satan worshiping, Anne Rice reading, Gothic, psycho, vampire wannabe.
    Agent Henriksen in "Jus In Bello" (S03, Ep12): Do you know what these guys do for kicks? Dig up graves and mutilate corpses. They're not just killers Sheriff. They're Satan-worshiping, nut-bag killers.
  • Police Are Useless: It is rare that the police understand the true nature of what they are fighting.
    Dean in "Nightshifter" (S02, Ep12): Friggin' cops.
    Sam: They're just doing their job, Dean.
    Dean: No, they're doing our job, only they don't know it, so they suck at it.
  • Weirdness Censor: Most of the police officers just ignore the odd events or take them in stride as if it was something they see everyday.
    Detective Glass in "Hunteri Heroici" (S08, Ep08): Coroner said his heart was ejected from his body. Got some air too... Found it in the sandbox.



     Agent Victor Henriksen 
"Well, guess what? Life sucks, get a helmet. ‘Cause everybody’s got a sob story, but not everybody becomes a killer."

FBI Special Agent Victor Henriksen is assigned to catch fugitive Dean Winchester (and later his brother Sam). He thinks they're both murderously insane, but acknowledges that they're crafty as hell and manages to get them into custody twice, the second time ending in his death shortly after learning the truth about the supernatural. Portrayed by Charles Malik Whitfield. First appears in "Nightshifter" (S02, Ep12).



     Special Agent Calvin Reidy 

"Armed robbery, kidnapping and, oh, three counts of first degree murder."

Agent Calvin Reidy is Agent Henriksen's partner. Portrayed by Kurt Evans. Appears in "Folsom Prison Blues" (S02, Ep19) and "Jus In Bello" (S03, Ep12).


  • FBI Agent: He is a Special Agent engaged in the criminal investigation of the Winchesters.
  • Meaningful Look: He tends to say little, but is able to communicate a lot to his partner Agent Henriksen in a glance.
  • The Quiet One: He typically only talks when asked a question, but can be a Deadpan Snarker.
    Agent Henriksen: Near went nuts trying to find you. Ask him.
    Agent Reidy: He near went nuts.
  • Salt and Pepper: He is much quieter and less emotional than Agent Henriksen.


     Prison Warden Deacon 

"Boys, uh... I can't thank you enough for this. I know it was asking a lot but you still came through. Your daddy raised you right."

Deacon served in the Marine Corps with John Winchester during the Vietnam War, and is now the Warden of Green River County Detention Center near Little Rock, Arkansas. He asks Dean and Sam for help when strange deaths start occurring in his prison. Portrayed by Garwin Sanford. Appears in "Folsom Prison Blues" (S02, Ep19).

     Sergeant Miranda Bates 

"Listen, kid, I don't have to do anything. And I don't take orders from the Feeb. So unless you can give me one good reason you got a couple of pretty-boy agents poking around my crime scene, I'm gonna put them in cuffs and spank your ass raw, understand? "

Sergeant Bates is a military police officer who is investigating a bus that was abandoned in front of the Naval base in Coronado, California with the bodies of 3 people who have fatal wounds, but the wounds appear quite old. Portrayed by Carmen Moore. Appears in "Devil May Care" (S09, Ep02).
