* Played tragically in ''TheInspectorLynleyMysteries'' when Barbara Havers gets shot in the line of duty at the end of series 3. Since there are 2.5 subsequent series, she [[LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt quite obviously gets better]]. This does not stop Lynley from [[UndyingLoyalty flipping his]] [[YouCalledMeXItMustBeSerious shit]] over it.

* ''HotFuzz'': The source of much of Danny Butterman's annoyance is that he's never handled a gun in a real situation - he gets to in the final act of the film, and this trope happens at least four times - [[spoiler:the last time with his ''father''.]]

* In the fifth season of ''Murphy's Law'' [[spoiler:this trope gets fulfilled to its maximum level. A police officer, who ended up being gang-raped after an undercover operation went wrong, enters the police station with a gun (having already killed the head of the people trafficking ring responsible) and takes the Chief Superintendent (who she blamed for him getting off) hostage. In the process she shots a detective in the arm, the Chief Superintendent in the leg and then herself in the head.]]

In most cases, the coppers know that there are likely to be guns involved and will send the Armed Response Units (police officers complete with [[FlakJacket bullet proof vests]], helmets and Heckler and Koch [=MP5=] submachine guns) in first. However, sometimes they get it wrong and a gun ends up being produced.
