Police Chief O’Hara is the Irish Chief of Gotham City’s Police Department… “Begorrrah”
He is basically Commissioner Gordon’s right hand man and will step in for him if he’s away.
William Dozier (Executive Producer) – “I was interviewed by a reporter in Boston…. She told me that all the Irish cops in Boston were quite concerned because this Irish cop Chief O’Hara was such a dolt. So I quickly assured her that this is Gotham City, nothing to do with Boston, if necessary I would come there to personally apologise to all the Irish policemen in Boston. But they all watched the show anyway, they got a great kick out of it!”
