The Resident Evil multimedia franchise involved a series of bizarre events that occurred at the Raccoon City Police Station. Raccoon City Police Headquarters was the base of operations for the Raccoon City Police Department (RPD). At the onset of the T-Virus outbreak, uniformed officers had to work overtime arresting people who were committing acts of extreme violence. Not realizing that these people were now zombies, the RPD did not take proper precautions when it came to detaining them. As such, several officers were bitten, thus spreading the virus even further. One rogue cop, Jill Valentine, knew the exact nature of what was happening. She walked into the main waiting are of the building and opened fire on several suspects - all zombies, shooting them in the head. [1]

Another bizarre occurrence involving a police station took place in the 2007 film adaptation of the Steve Niles & Ben Templesmith comic series 30 Days of Night. In the film, a mysterious stranger arrives in the town of Barrow, Alaska and begins committing acts of sabotage. He is confronted by the town's sheriff Eben Oleson at the Ikos Diner and is arrested after causing a stir. While locked up, the stranger baits Eben's young brother Jake Oleson into coming up to the cell, at which point, he reaches through the bars and attacks him. Eben returns just in time and shoots the stranger in the shoulder, forcing him to release Jake. Shortly thereafter, vampire elder Marlow Roderick and his brood descend upon the town. They commit wholesale slaughter, feeding indiscriminately off of anyone they can find. Marlow eventually makes his way to the police station where the stranger expects him to honor a promise he had made to make him a vampire. With not intention of keeping such a promise, Roderick snaps the stranger's neck with his bare hands.
