You are not particularly likely to see a FairCop in a stripper's police outfit -- although you may see him or her as a DirtyHarriet, which [[GiveAWholeNewMeaning gives a whole new meaning]] to the motto "To protect and to serve".

* Judy Hopps from ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', in contrast to other female officers like Francine and Fangmeyer, has a very feminine appearance, HartmanHips included (justified in that she, as a bunny, [[KickChick has a lot of leg strength]] and [[BouncingBattler jumps a lot]]). In a variation, she's not attractive as much as she is [[RidiculouslyCuteCritter adorable]] (again, [[BunniesForCuteness being a bunny]]).

* Film/FinalDestination2 has Thomas Burke, a good-looking state trooper.
* Deputy Rita Marrick in Film/ArmyOfOne, although given her wardrobe, she is also filling the MsFanservice trope. She starts the movie wearing a LittleBlackDress, spends the majority of the film in tight jeans and a [[BareYourMidriff crop top]], and appears in a form-fitting uniform at the end of the movie in the original ending (though not in the [[RevisedEnding revised one]]).
* Guard Sally Bishop in Film/ConAir technically fills this trope, even though she is a prison guard and not a police officer. In-universe this proves to be a problem for her once the inmates take over the plane, as there is a [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil convicted rapist]] on board as well.

* In the ''Literature/StephaniePlum'' books, even cop-phobic Lula (a former hooker) thinks Morelli is seriously hot. Most women in the series agree with her -- especially, of course, Stephanie (who is in an on-off relationship with him).

** Subverted in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS31E1TheEleventhHour "The Eleventh Hour"]], where the attractive Amy Pond initially appeared wearing an improbably short-skirted police uniform. This was shortly revealed to be because she's a ''kissogram'', a mostly defunct profession now supplanted by actual strippers.

* ''Series/{{Life On Mars|2006}}'' where do we start? Well, DC Chris Skelton is definitely in the running, as is WPC Annie Cartwright. Then there's Sam Tyler, who seems to wear a ''lot'' of [[TheSeventies skin-tight shirts with very at least three buttons undone]] (his neck has a lot of fans). And then there's DCI Gene Hunt. Search 'Gene Hunt is sexy' and see how many hits you get. Spin-off ''Series/AshesToAshes2008'' adds DI Alex Drake, who gets a hell of a lot of MsFanservice moments right from the beginning, as well as WPC Shaz Granger.

* ''Series/{{Patriot}}'': Agetha is an attractive, blond homicide detective in Luxembourg. The entire homicide department is female, because Luxembourg usually has zero murders per year, and they've all been KickedUpstairs by their chauvinist male comrades, who derisively refer to Homicide as the Department of Skirts and Stockings.

Added DiffLines:

* Clarabelle "Bell" Kawamoto from ''Manga/{{Jagaaaaaan}}'' is a police officer and is very sexy. Jagasaki sure is lucky to work with her.

* Angua, Salacia von Humpeding, and Carrot Ironfoundersson from the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novels. Constable Reg Shoe also looks quite young for a cop, although the fact he's been a zombie for years makes his appearance a poor indication of how long he's been ali- er, around. (And it's hard to describe him as conventionally attractive, unless undead pallor, visible stitching, and the occasional infestation of carrion eaters are your thing.)

* Angua, Salacia 'Sally' von Humpeding, and Carrot Ironfoundersson from the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' novels. Carrot's photogenic qualities were once exploited by Vimes in ''Thud!'', and Angua initially gets HelloNurse reactions when she joins up, with half-joking remarks that people would be ''queuing up'' to be arrested, which changes - while she doesn't become any less attractive, she tends to scare people via a number of things, such as a habit of intensely staring at peoples' jugulars.

* ''Literature/TheDresdenFiles'': Lt. Karrin Murphy, as well as Connie Murphy, her TV counterpart. In the books, she's petite, being about 5 feet tall, striking a significant contrast with Harry Dresden, whose height is given at between 6'8'' and 6'10'' (he isn't totally consistent, but he can "look down on some people in the NBA"), blonde, blue-eyed, and described as cute. [[BadassAdorable She also once took down an ogre with a chainsaw, while nursing a nasty knee injury.]] It's noted on more than one occasion that she seems to have become a badass cop to spite her appearance. Unusually for literary examples, the fact that she ages (the series having covered about 12 years so far, and put her through a number of stressful events) is not skimmed over, and it doesn't leave Dresden any less attracted to her.
