Cop Rick is an alternate version of Rick Sanchez who first appeared in the episode, "Tales From the Citadel". He is a police officer of The Citadel, and was the former partner of Cop Morty before killing him in the nightclub The Creepy Morty in Mortytown.
Cop Rick is shown to be a rarity among Ricks, in that he actually has a sense of honor and responsibility. He upholds a strong sense of justice, and takes his job seriously, following codes of regulation and various protocols, going as far as to call out Cop Morty, who was his senior partner, on his dishonest code violations.
Although initially sharing the ideas of mistreating Mortys as other Ricks, Cop Rick is thrown off by the sheer tenacity of Cop Morty and is left horrified by his actions against other Mortys in Mortytown, apparently leading him to "go soft." This behavior causes him to let his guard down and literally get stabbed in the back by another Morty.
