|[List of appearances]|
There are two types of police detectives. They both have a light blue torso with printing on their back that says, "Police," and black legs, but have different facial expressions and different hair colors. The detectives are distinguished from police officers by their new blue uniforms. They help solve crimes by analyzing all of the evidence, and pointing the cops to the suspect. Currently, they only appear in three LEGO sets.
- The variation included in 7288 Mobile Police Unit is actually the LEGO City police chief in the 2011 wave of sets.
