The Gotham City Police Department (GCPD) is the police department of Gotham City.

History

The Gotham City Police Department was founded in 1820.

In December 2018, when Barry Allen (in Oliver Queen's reality) picked a fight with men claiming to be from the Gotham Tourism Bureau who tried to mug them at, nearby GCPD officers drove to the scene. Realizing that they were arresting the former vigilante of Star City, the officers took extra precaution by calling in a S.W.A.T. team. Barry (Oliver) eventually surrendered and let himself be arrested, along with Oliver and Kara. Later that night, a police officer stationed at the department informed the three of their bail, which was paid by Kate Kane.[1]
