Good grief, there are a ton of these, real and imagined. Here's some off the top of my head (watching the original Death Wish for the first time yesterday triggered all this):

Frank Ochoa – Death Wish
Frank Drebin – Police Squad/Naked Gun

How many can you think of?

GurKhan and 79thPA,

Hill Street Blues is probably what led me into law enforcement in 1987. I'm still in so I guess it was a pretty good show. lol

Yep, Renko was my favorite character too.

Lt. Columbo (Yes, his first name is Frank. You could see it on his police ID one of the few times he flashed it.)

I've been watching the Swedish police drama Johan Falk lately, so I'll mention informant Frank Wagner, even though he's not actually a cop.

Didn't know that Zephyr1! So my vote goes for Columbo too.

Volleyfire20 Mar 2019 2:47 a.m. PST

Frank Cannon, if only for his immense on-screen presence.;-)

Surely, it would be Frank Drebin.

Personal logo Herkybird Supporting Member of TMP27 Mar 2019 11:57 a.m. PST

Another vote for Frank Furillo!

They don't make shows like Hill Street Blues any more, more's the pity…

Hey! …let's be careful out there!
