Acting as both ally and opponent of Batman, the G.C.P.D. has long been steeped in corruption with numerous officers, both high-and-low ranking, involved in bribery, and even more serious offenses, such as drug-trafficking and murder. When a series of killings shook the the mafia, they lashed out in sloppy, retaliatory crimes which, in combination with rising gang violence, severely crippled organised crime in Gotham. Simultaneously, the ebbing presence of corrupt police officers allowed James Gordon to become the new commissioner, a man determined to eradicate crime wherever it existed.
