It’s about time we gave some recognition to Hollywood’s finest — as in, those who’ve joined the police force in movies and television programs.

One of our most beloved Hollywood hunks, Mark Wahlberg, has portrayed a member of the law enforcement quite frequently. At this point, whenever a new Wahlberg film is announced, we can assume that he’ll be playing some sort of bad-to-the-bone, pistol-whipping protagonist. (Or another Ted movie). If you’re unfamiliar with the actor’s police work, try The Departed2 GunsThe Other Guys, or We Own the Night.

Channing TatumWill Smith and Lucy Liu have also portrayed those who vow to serve and protect on screen.
