Darkwing Duck Wiki
Boom Studios 05 - Chief of Police declares

Commissioner Morton[1] is a high ranking official at the police department of St. Canard.



Presumably a long-serving police agent, Morton has made the necessary promotions to become the spokesperson of choice when the police department has something to say to the public. He is either a colleague of or the successor to the other chief from the cartoon.


Commissioner Morton believes in a thorough investigation before pointing fingers, but is still burdened with a level of naïveté that makes him susceptible to wrong conclusions. According to writer Aaron Sparrow, Darkwing is always attempting to please Morton, but Morton cannot stand him.[1]


Morton is a dognose-like dog with light beige skin, white hair up in a tuft, and thick blue-grey glasses. He isn't one for uniforms and goes dressed in formal wear with tie and trenchcoat.
