The Woodcrest Police Department (WPD) is the municipal law enforcement agency of the city of Woodcrest, Maryland.

The Woodcrest Police have a reputation for being highly corrupt, racially biased, needlessly violent, and stupidly incompetent at doing their jobs. They have been paid off with bribes from local billionaire Ed Wuncler I, thus allowing Wuncler's family (such as his son and grandson) and their accomplices (like Gin Rummy) to get away with committing any crimes they want scot-free. They are also very racist against black people and other racial minorities, often leading them to falsely arrest or even prematurely attack non-white individuals (including Uncle Ruckus, Tom DuBois, or a trio of shopkeepers who were defending their store from being robbed by Ed III and Rummy). Occasionally, police officers have been shown to be competent helpful in certain episodes.


The police officers in Woodcrest all wear a navy blue uniform, with black ties and navy hats with shields. Officers wear their badges on their chests, and symbols on their shoulders signifying rank. Officers generally carry both guns, resembling Glock 22’s, and nightsticks. Detectives are seen with suits or overcoats and ties.

Most of the police officers are white, but several black cops have also been shown.

Police Vehicles[]

The police cars in Woodcrest are four-door sedans with red and blue light bars on the roof. Though poorly animated in Season 1, in later seasons they seem to be based off of 1998-2011 Ford Crown Victorias and 2000-2005 Chevy Impalas They all sport a generic black and white police livery, with "Police" written in black and/or gold on the side doors and decklid.

The police come to the Freman's residence to confront Riley for tagging a house, signing "Riley Wuz Here." Huey asks if the cop is here for him or Riley, leading Granddad to be suspicious.

At the end of the episode, Riley and the art teacher get in a high-speed chase and shootout, with the teacher taking out several police cars.

The Block Is Hot[]

The police play a prominent role in this episode. They initially respond to Uncle Ruckus snitching on Riley, but mistake him as a perpetrator, shooting at him before beating him. Ruckus, viewing it as a justified action, foregoes a settlement to become an honorary officer, and vowing to persecute every black person in the neighborhood.

During a riot over Lemonade, the police begin to attack rioters, and Ruckus is once again beaten by an officer, who is technically his colleague. The riot is quelled by snow, and Ruckus is left delirious.

Ruckus is never seen in a police uniform again, though it can be assumed it is one of his many jobs.

  • They utterly SUCK at gathering evidence for their cases; seemingly arresting the nearest black man just to close the cases faster.
    • Xbox Killer? They arrested Tom DuBois, an upstanding citizen and lawyer. Plus simple DNA examination would prove he wasnt at the victim's home or even played the damn console.
    • Eli Gorbinsky? The guy left as many clues as there was Commandments. Did he get arrested? Nope. They arrested the completely unrelated Shabazz K. Milton-Berle and gave a kangaroo court.
