Internal affairs. AKA the rat squad, cops who go after cops.
Of course, unless you're one of those folks who thinks that "all cops are inherently good guys and should never be questioned under any circumstances" (and I'm not one of those people!), "Internal Affairs" sections are really very much "good guys," not "rats." Any cop who calls IA "rats" isn't someone I want policing MY neighborhood!
You'll recall that the GCPD was very corrupt in BB, and it was important for Gordon to emphasize that he wasn't a rat, even when he didn't approve of the things that he saw. One gets the impression that he wouldn't have lasted long if he'd done otherwise.
