He seems ignorant most of the time, but he's been a detective and he once stopped Bats from taking off his mask saying: "What makes you think I don't already know?"

What do you think.

Quite possible - as you say, not all Policemen in comics can be slow on the uptake. Remember, Captain Stacey had worked out who Spider-man was before he died, so maybe JG has figured it out. By the way, did he ever know his own daughter was one Batgirl?

You know, I'm not sure. He didn't seem to know during "The Killing Joke".

In one comic he says he does not want to know, He actually says to bats if he did he would have found out along time ago.

Thats the episode that prompted the question for me... and re-reading "Killing Joke".

Satyre:

That episode makes me cry everytime I see it...I cry a lot...I'm such a sap. I loved the scene where Brice is waiting by the fun and Tim and Alfred are in the room, and Gordon calls. It's so sad.
