Bates Motel Wiki

Jane Greene is the new sheriff of White Pine Bay, succeeding the incarcerated Alex Romero. She is competent, professional, moralistic and sharp. She possesses a small-town vibe that belies her highly observant nature.


Season 5[]

As the sheriff arrived for work, Regina told her that she had received a phone call about Jim Blackwell who had skipped parole. She called to the Bates house to talk to Norman since Blackwell had his address and was incarcerated in the same prison as Romero, who had also escaped, but Norman knew nothing about it. When she called again that evening she checked the motel guest register and was confused when Norman mentioned about Canyon Creek since she never mentioned it when she first paid him a visit. She gave him the license plate number of Blackwell's car before leaving. (Hidden)

When the sheriff phoned Norman, she asked him to come down to the station to chat further about her investigation into Jim Blackwell's disappearance. Norman met with her and badmouthed Romero but when the sheriff said he may have had unfinished business Norman said it was possible he did. (Dreams Die First)

As Norman returned from disposing Sam Loomis' body, the sheriff pulled into the motel parking lot and told him that the police had found Jim Blackwell's body in the lake along with another body. Norman did not say much but slipped up when she questioned him about the fresh tire marks in the gravel. She told him that she would be in contact again soon. (Inseparable)

Following Norman's call to confess to the murder of Sam Loomis, the sheriff showed up at the house and took him in for questioning. However, she did not fully believe his account of what really happened, deducing that he was making everything up just for attention and later told Madeleine that Norman may have killed Sam since he had an infatuation with her. A second body that had been pulled from the water was later identified as Audrey Ellis and after informing Dylan, the sheriff told Norman that he was being formally charged with both Audrey's and Jim Blackwell's murders. (The Body)

She was seen in attendance at Norman's preliminary hearing as she was called by the prosecution to testify about Sam Loomis' and Audrey Ellis' deaths. (Visiting Hours)

Together with her deputies they were seen trying to figure out where Romero had taken Norman. She called Dylan to the station to ask if he knew where Romero had taken Norman and Regina, but it was clear that she did not care about Norman being mentally ill. Following Regina's return to the station, they went to the woods where they found Romero's corpse. (The Cord)


  • The character did not exist in the novel or film Psycho. The sheriff in the latter was named Al Chambers.
  • When she visits Norman and asks him questions, some of the shots from Psycho are recreated and Sheriff Greene resembles Milton Arbogast, a private investigator who's trying to track down Marion Crane.
