Quote1 I keep asking myself why I didn't bring him in. And I now know, the truth is I let him go because of you. Because you believe in him. I don't know... They put me in charge of a station full of rotten cops. And I can't change them - any more than I can change this damn city... Or at least that's what I used to think. But maybe, maybe I can give them something to believe in. Maybe HE can give them something to believe in. Quote2
-- Commissioner James Gordon src

Police Commissioner James W. Gordon dedicated his career to cleaning up the corruption in the Gotham City police department, a goal he has come a long way towards accomplishing. He has been equally tough on crime, and in the pursuit of making Gotham City safe for all its citizens. Gordon was naturally uneasy with the Batman especially when he had to rely on the Dark Knight during one particular Christmas night when the Black Mask put a 50 million dollar bounty on his head.


  • Gordon appears as an enemy in the Batman: Arkham Asylum Playstation 3 Exclusive Joker DLC. Gordon always appears as a thug on the last round of a fighting challenge map. The commissioner can actually be beaten like any other guard.
    • Gordon can also be shot by the Joker like any other guard in the challenge maps.
