Harvey Bullock



Harvey Bullock joined the Gotham police in the early 1980s. In his days as a beat cop, he was partnered with Jonesy. They witnessed what would later become the Batman during a highway chase. Later, officer Bullock was assigned to the crime scene of the murder of John and Mary Grayson.

After working as a uniformed officer, Bullock was promoted and transferred to Vice. He was tenacious in his apprehension of many drug dealers, including Vincent Starkey. His ferocity and questionable tactics earned him a long dossier at Internal Affairs.

Despite Internal Affairs breathing down his neck, Bullock made it to the Special Crimes Unit. Now a Lieutenant, Bullock was known for getting results. Bullock made no apologizes for his approach to his work and at one point even lead a taskforce aimed at bringing Batman to justice. This assignment brought him into conflict with James Gordon, who considered the whole idea to be a fiasco.

Bullock's attitude toward Batman would improve slightly as time went on and agreed to play along with Jim Gordon's assertion that the Dark Knight served a purpose. Indeed, Bullock went to Batman for help when he was faced with numerous death threats from an unknown person and he didn't want to go the Police Department for help; given his checkered past. Subsequently, the two worked together to solve the problem. As it turned out, Bullock's landlord was trying to scare him away because of his bad habits. In spite of his gruff exterior, Bullock did have a softer side; though he rarely showed it. For example, while he was playing the role Santa during a stakeout; he met the daughter of a man he sent to prison and gave her money so she could buy herself something for Chirstmas. Additionally, he was sympathetic to Jim Gordon's grief when Batman was thought to have been killed.

He eventually found a partner in the slightly more timid Renee Montoya, who he had been working with a lot when she was still in the uniformed division. Harvey and Renee continued to work together for years, even after she was promoted to Detective becoming good friends in the process. Some time later, he was given a new partner: Sonia Alcana.
