Gotham Városi Rendőrség Története
Batman, aki már régóta űzte a szuperhősködést Gotham-ban, egyaránt a szövetségesei, és az ellenségei is a GVR-en korruptak voltak, számos tisztviselő magas és alacsony rangban is szerepet játszott a megvesztegetésekben, olyan komoly ügyeket tusoltak el, mint a drogkereskedelem, és gyilkosság.
A Falcone család, akik nemzedékeken keresztül irányították Gotham alvilágát, végül összeomlott, amikor egy gyilkosságsorozat megrázta a maffiaszervezet szerkezetét. Carmine Falcone halála után, az általuk féken tartott csőcselék, hatalmat akart, ezért az egyre növekedő bandaháborúk, megnyomorította a szervezett bűnözést Gotham-ban. Ezzel egyidejűleg a korrupt rendőrök apadó jelenléte megengedte James Gordonnak, hogy ő legyen az új rendőrfelügyelő, egy ember, aki elhatározota, hogy bárhol üti is fel a bűn a fejét, elpusztítja azt.
Gordon felügyelő szövetségre lépett vele, mert Batman elvégezte a munkáját. Az utóda, Commissioner Michael Akins, elrendelte Batman letartóztatását, és a denevér jel eltávolítását a rendőrség tetejéről. A korrupció és rothadás a rendőrségen belül újra szárba szökkent Akins felügyelő kinevezését követően.
· Gyilkossági osztály
Ez a részleg kezeli a gyilkosokat, és néhány nem-metahumán bűnözőket Gotham-ban. Ez az osztály már Gordon felügyelő előtt is része volt a rendőrségnek. A korábban magán nyomozóként dolgozó Jason Bard most ezen az osztályon dolgozik.
· Főbenjáró Bűnök Osztálya
Maggie Sawyer kapitány vezetésével, aki korábban Metropolisban szolgált ugyanilyen poszton, a MBO foglalkozik a legkomolyabb bűnökkel, gyakran szuperbűnözőkkel, és politikai érdekű nyomozásokkal is. Ez az osztály a Gotham központra összpontosít.
· Gyors Reagálású Erők
Gerard „Jerry” Hennelly hadnagy a vezetője, a gothami GYRE a Swat-nak felel meg.
