  • Has to call Batman to stop a street gang
  • Holds up vital evidence implicating Batman of a murder on live television while saying that they don't want to jump to conclusions
  • Sees a video of a guy leaping to his grisly doom, but only declares it a suicide when he reads a crappy forged suicide note
  • Doesn't arrest a woman who breaks into Police HQ and turns the Bat-Signal on
  • Holds diamonds up at a charity event
  • Attends a telescope unveiling
  • Gets seduced by Poison Ivy at the telescope unveiling into giving her the keys to the roof of Police HQ
