Police in science fiction stories
In the album Bonne Année, where the setting is a future police state, the police ultimately let our youthful protagonists go in an act of generosity. The hero of the album Kraken is police Lt. Dante, who patrols what is both literally and figuratively the underworld of the city of Metropol. "Sanitation Police" are one of the forces operating in the post-catastrophe world of Pepe Moreno's Rebel, though law and order don't seem to be present to be enforced.

Police in detective and urban stories
In the album The Go-Between, Kelly Green is the widow of a police officer and solves his murder by getting involved with his former partner and superiors. In the album Joe's Bar, Pepe the undocumented alien lives in constant fear of the police.

Police in colonial and neo-colonial adventure stories
During World War I, Hugo Pratt's Corto Maltese runs into the "Leopard-Men of the Rufiji" in the album Corto Maltese in Africa and learns that the mysterious organization is actually a secret pan-African police force. In the album Indiana Jones et la Cité de al Foudre, there is a colonial policeman named Blake, who turns out to be a villain. In the album L'Otage, which takes place in the Spanish-speaking Caribbean and is part of the spy/adventure series Condor, the police are mentioned twice. The first time we are told about police making people disappear because they are too political. The second time the police are not really police, but right-wing thugs impersonating police, and they try to make Condor disappear because he has ransom money destined for the rebels. The South Seas French-colonial police in Allaïve : un Môme de Perdu are good guys, working hard to solve a mystery that involves a criminal European. In the comedic Jack Palmer album L'Enquête Corse, Mr. Palmer is kidnapped by armed liberationists who are soon in a faction fight about who gets to keep the prisoner. The police arrive, arrest the prisoner, and are soon in an inter-agency struggle that mirrors that of the militants.

   Summary: Darrel Dane comes to the aid of a fleeing man by
   knocking out his pursuer, but it turns out he has knocked
   out Inspector Frosby who was chasing The Angle. The Angle
   is a crook who always has a surprise idea, an "angle," to
   avoid capture. Darrel gets arrested, but sneaks out as Doll
   Man to work on the case. Hackie Joe Bilber remembers where
   he dropped their man off, at a hideout where his pal
   Small-Time is waiting. Doll Man hides and watches while
   established gangsters Boxy and Shoulders offer to cooperate
   with them. Doll Man squirts seltzer at Boxy and Shoulders,
   which starts a brawl. Meanwhile the police have decided
   that Darrel Dane is The Angle, so when Doll Man's phone
   call comes in they think they know who to look for. The
   police try to arrest Dane, and use tear gas, but Darrel
   changes back to Doll Man. Things get sorted out, and the
   new "crime combine" has been prevented. -- Data from Bob

   that no cabaret will let them in because they are so young.
   Memín plans to pretend they are musicians. The white boys
   sing, however badly, and Memín holds it together with his
   natural rhythm. Meanwhile, Carlos's mother Isabel
   ("Chabela") is in a tough underworld cabaret talking about
   how she hates her life and how her husband abandoned her
   when he got rich, though Carlos doesn't know this.
   Eventually the four friends arrive at the same
   establishment and find Chabela fighting off a drunk
   customer. The man hits her and Carlos wades in, knocking
   him down. The man pulls a gun and tries to shoot Carlos,
   but Isabel gets between them and is shot. Carlos throws a
   bottle and apparently kills the man. Isabel is not badly
   hurt and tells her son to run before the police get there.
