I'm never gonna frame an innocent man again... unless I know he's black for sure!
~ Harrison Yates vowing to only frame black people of crimes and arrest them.
Boys. We are back in business!
~ Harrison Yates to his men when they are ordered to contain the riots.

Harrison Yates is a major antagonist from the animated series South Park. He was the secondary antagonist of the 2017 video game, South Park: The Fractured But Whole. He is also one of the two main antagonists of The Pandemic Special (alongside Randy Marsh).

He is the chief of police of South Park who is racist and often abuses his power.

He is voiced by Trey Parker.


Yates is the police chief of South Park. He runs an entire station full of corrupt cops, and apparently has some grudge against any black man wealthier than he is. So he (and the rest of the South Park police) organize them to be framed for bogus crimes by planting evidence. He doesn't seem to give a damn whenever there's any real crime in South Park. In "The Jeffersons" he even tried to have Michael Jefferson/Jackson arrested, and only decided not to when he found out Mr. Jackson was going to give away all his money.

The Fractured But Whole

Yates participated in the Mitch Conner's conspiracy, being directly responsible for the drug epidemic. During the game, he initially makes the New Kid a "Junior Detective" and gives the him/her missions to beat up black people so he can arrest them on fake charges of drug dealing, with Token's parents included among his victims. It's later revealed that he was secretly the leader of a police cult that worships Shub-Niggurath, a being that could only be "appeased" by being fed "black meat" (ie. African-Americans). Amusingly, he spends the most of the game increasingly insisting that the police aren't racists, even as it becomes increasingly clear that they are. The New Kid, along with the combined forces of Coon and Friends and Freedom Pals, defeat him and his fellow officers.


  • He serves as one of the two main antagonists of The Pandemic Special due to serving as the abusive teacher of the students who wrongfully shoots Token, lies about the children needing to be quarantined and murders and attempts to murder numerous characters in order to contain the riots.
  • Like all police officers in South Park, Yates hates wealthy African-Americans.
  • He and Officer Barbrady never interacted onscreen until "The City Part of Town", after co-existing for over a decade. They seem to be on friendly terms.
