Worst TV Cops of All Time
5. Lt. Jim Dangle of Reno 911It's hard to imagine anyone thinking Dangle is attractive. Although he claims that he wears those tight shorts for added mobility, it's more likely that Dangle thinks it will help his chances with Jonesy. Even his wife volunteered for a gastric bypass to escape their marriage into a lesbian affair.
4. Sgt. Frank Drebin, Detective Lieutenant, Police Squad!Hide the expensive glassware, deadpan Drebin's in the house. The bumbling master of discovering the obvious and missing the crucial has the distinction of holding three police ranks at once. Citing the harsh realities of life, Drebin remarks, "You take a big chance getting up in the morning, crossing the street, or sticking your face in a fan."
3. Deputy Sheriff Barney Fife, Andy Griffith ShowThere's hardly any crime in Mayberry, and that's a good thing considering Deputy Sheriff Fife's on the job. Jittery Fife can turn a speeding ticket incident into high drama. If you want something blabbed about town, tell it to Fife. It's hard to imagine what Thelma Lou sees in him. Officers across the country today refer to an inept partner as a "fife."
2. Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane, Dukes of HazzardSheriff Coltrane successfully set North-South relations back about a hundred years. Apparently Georgia doesn't believe in high-speed training tracks for its officers. Coltrane has parked his Monaco or Fury cruiser in most of the lakes, rivers, and trees of Hazzard County. The Duke boys can sleep easier knowing Coltrane's on the job.
