I'm a law officer. It's my job to protect the people and property of this city.
— The Police Commissioner to the Merlopians in "Nyad"

The Police Commissioner is the head of the police department in Ninjago City. He is also the owner and maker of his model boat. In an alternate timeline, Nadakhan framed the ninja for a crime spree and the Commissioner led an effort to arrest them, though later allied with the ninja to help defeat the Sky Pirates. He later helped them against the Sons of Garmadon. He soon found himself being stripped of his rank by the Sons of Garmadon, then arrested by them and imprisoned in Kryptarium Prison. Upon hearing the ninja's return, he joins the other prisoners in breaking out and defeating Colossus, thus becoming Commissioner again.




He is first shown on the TV of the pub in Stiix, reporting the framed crimes of the ninja. An officer soon reports to him that they were unable to find the ninja after they flee Stiix.

Public Enemy Number One

He is shown answering the interviewers' questions and he asks Ronin to catch the ninja before discovering Misako, who was arrested earlier on, had disappeared from the interrogation room she was locked in, unaware that she was captured by Nadakhan and his eyes start twitching, making his deputies think he is blind. When Tommy discovers a status update from Kai, he tries to catch them, however, he is sent "on a wild rat chase" where he is tricked into following a device worn by a rat. His eye twitches again causing his deputies to think he is blind, but he yells that he isn't. He later gives Ronin his reward after capturing the ninja.

Misfortune Rising

Upon hearing the ninja's escape from Kryptarium Prison, the Police Commissioner was furious and demand all sources devoted to their recapture. However, he paused the search after one of the officers (who was none other than Nya in disguise) suggested they break for lunch.

Later in the day when Misfortune's Keep attacked Ninjago City, the Police Commissioner established a blockade and ordered them to surrender, thought the pirates did not yield. When the ninja suddenly appeared, the Commissioner angrily demanded why Simon and Tommy didn't arrest them, and took off to do it himself. He eventually confronted Lloyd in an alleyway, but reluctantly let him go after realizing they were only trying to help.

My Dinner With Nadakhan

The Commissioner, his deputies, and Ronin pick up Lloyd, Cole, and Nya from Tiger Widow Island after finding out they took Cliff Gordon's boat and told them they had been cleared of their crimes.


The Commissioner told Dareth that the ninja have his men at their disposal, but the Brown Ninja sends them away! but they stick around to help construct a Raid Zeppelin. He and his forces later help Jay and Nya when they reach Ninjago.

The Last Resort

The Commissioner and his men try to hold Nadakhan off while Jay and Nya flee through a secret hatch. When Nadakhan caught up to them, the Commissioner ate their map to prevent him from finding them before he and his deputies were taken by him. When both Tommy and Simon were to walk the plank, Nadakhan learned of the Tiger Widow Venom from Tommy, making the Commissioner hate Tommy more before they abandon ship, near a shark, causing him to twitch his eye again.

Operation Land Ho!

As Jay was bringing together a team to stop Nadakhan, the Commissioner was in the process of arresting Ronin when he beckoned them to come. During the chase of Squiffy and Bucko, the Commissioner was able to arrest Squiffy when Soto threw him off his vehicle and watched as the piece of Ninjago the others got on started to rise up into the sky.

Prior to Sons of Garmadon

Learning of a criminal group that was recruiting new members, the Commissioner made a deal with Ronin to help clear Ronin's name if he would teach a "School for Crooks" to allow former criminals a second chance at life and to help stifle the new gang's numbers. The Commissioner later contacted Zane about the criminal group.[1]

Sons of Garmadon

Dread on Arrival

The Commissioner was busy, painting a model boat when the ninja and P.I.X.A.L. barge in, demanding his assistance in rescuing Lloyd and stopping Harumi and the Sons of Garmadon's plans. Shocked at first, the Commissioner agrees and calls the mayor for authorization. Later, he was in the back seat of a squad car with Simon and Tommy as they came up to the Temple of Resurrection and saw the members waiting for them. As the Commissioner read out their charges, Killow, with the Oni Mask of Deception, took his bullhorn before he tells the officers to "light them up." They first mistake it for torches and since they have no guns, they resort to tasers instead, while informing Kai that he will do his best to distract the members.

After the ninja stop the ceremony, the Police Commissioner, as well as all his forces, soon arrive to arrest the defeated Sons of Garmadon, including Harumi.

True Potential

He and Simon observe a silent Harumi in an interrogation room, where they soon heard a crash and to their shock, it was Garmadon who is attacking his officers before he too is injured. Later, he tells the ninja about the attack and believes there is no more good in Garmadon as well when he tried to reason with him.

Big Trouble, Little Ninjago

The Commissioner and his officers attempted to stop Colossus, but when they were nearly stomped on by it, Harumi demands them to kneel before Garmadon, which they reluctantly do so.



The Commissioner is seen as a target on Ultra Hunt his connection with hiding Lloyd and his allies. Afterward, his capture is announced by Ultra Violet

Two Lies, One Truth

The Commissioner paces around his cell in Kryptarium Prison, as Ronin whistles in a nearby cell.

Green Destiny

The Commissioner was among the other prisoners at Kryptarium to break out, upon hearing of the four ninja's return.

He was later among the members of the Resistance and the public as they help the ninja take Colossus down until Garmadon lost his power. As he personally watched over the Sons of Garmadon being escorted into a police van, teasing them on the status of Kryptarium as revenge for locking him away. He soon sees the reunited ninja as they crowd around Lloyd, who's power has returned, and silently thanked them as Garmadon was put in the van.

Several days later, when Wu made a ruse for the ninja to attend a celebration, the Commissioner told Lloyd and the ninja that although he thanked them, the public wanted to as well.

March of the Oni

The Darkness Comes

The Commissioner waits for Cole, Zane, and P.I.X.A.L., who arrive late for a ceremony, presenting them with the new Destiny's Bounty.

He was later painting a model boat before Jimmy barged in, telling him about the phones ringing off the hook, later learning it is an Oni in dark mist before he and the officers find themselves surrounded by it. Luckily, the ninja arrive and get them onto the Bounty. After the ninja got as many people as they could rescue, the Commissioner is seen talking to Zane about their situation.

Secrets of the Forbidden Spinjitzu

Questing for Quests

The Commissioner was, as usual, painting his model boat when the ninja burst in, claiming they needed to help Ninjago City. Multiple crime scenes, reported by Jimmy, were either non-existent or were fake calls and were not as important as taking down a villain. The ninja eventually give up and return to the Monastery, tired.


The Elemental Cobras continued to attack Ninjago City until the Commissioner and his department tells the Elemental Cobras they are under arrest, but one of the Elemental Cobras ignores him and spits fire at the Commissioner. This prompts the other police members to spray water at the Elemental Cobra; however, the Elemental Cobras quickly take out the fire hydrant and surround the Commissioner and his crew.

Facing certain doom, the ninja come and rescue the Commissioner and defeat the Elemental Cobras.

The Kaiju Protocol

When the Preeminent is defeated, the Commissioner and several other citizens came out of hiding.

Prime Empire

Would You Like to Enter Prime Empire?

The Police Commissioner arrives with his officers to arrest The Mechanic and congratulates the ninja on their efforts in bringing him down. He is unable to answer Kai's Question of why they were pursuing him in the first place, but he intends to get the villain to talk.

Dyer Island

The Commissioner interrupts the ninja's interrogation of The Mechanic to inform them that Prime Empire had begun appearing on arcade machines all over the city. He then, gleefully, escorts The Mechanic to his prison cell.


The Calm Before the Storm

He leads the Ninja, Wu, and Benthomaar to Glutinous.


He and Jimmy are cornered by Maaray Guards. Kalmaar asks him to tell him where the Ninja are but claims he doesn't know.

The Turn of the Tide

He was present at Nya's memorial.
