Set in a neighborhood police station in Tokyo. The story follows the crazy adventures of the main character Ryotsu Kankichi, a middle aged policeman.

"Kochikame" has a broad audience, ranging from adolescent boys to middle-aged salarymen. Much like Homer Simpson, Ryo-san's antics appeal to children who can laugh at an old buffoon and to men fearing that they are becoming old buffoons themselves. The stories are generally innocent in content, and what little violence appears is comical, while the occasional risque subjects are included strictly for laughs rather than to titillate. In another parallel to the Simpsons, Kochikame's immense popularity has lead to guest appearances in the strip by Japanese celebrities such as Komuro Tetsuya.
