Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world's greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon's story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world's most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them – the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker?

Kristen Kringle is abused by her boyfriend who is one of the cops at the gcpd. Ed later strangles her to death which I believe could count also. In season four Alfred meets a waitress who is also being abused by her boyfriend, whom later kills her.

A character lies to his mother about his life of crime, despite all evidence. It's not with the intent of gaslighting her, but it's worth noting if this is a relevant trigger. Especially intense in Under The Knife (S1E20). Potentially Beware The Green-Eyed Monster (S3E11) & Light The Wick (S3E18) also qualify.

Yes, and more often than not they’re shown on screen and graphic. In S1 E8, a character’s hand is stabbed and pinned to a table with a brooch. In S4 E14 a character gets their hand bashed in with a hammer. Those are two that specifically come to mind, but there are two characters who later on have their hands cut off, etc

Oswald Cobblepot has a physical disability and is played by an actor who does not have the same disability. In a different episode or episodes, I think Spirit of The Goat is one, there's a character in a wheelchair played by a non disabled actor, there's possibly more instances of this but I can't remember.

Gordon, and to an extent his friend-cops, are very much "the only good cops in a precinct of bad cops" trope. However, Gordon regularly breaks laws to terrorize and intimidate citizens of Gotham. The framing on this is neutral to positive.
Given the difference between the actions and framing, it's unlikely to persuade anyone critical of policing that cops are actually good. Most critique of policing in the show is focused on how cops are effected by their job, though it does have moments.
Ultimately a Yes for me because it is a police procedural at the end of the day, and consumed completely uncritically Gordon makes at least 3 speeches per season about how cops are good.

Edward AKA the Riddler is given an 'alter ego' that is evil and gives Edward 'murderous' thoughts and black outs, it's not as bad as other series but it's still a very stigmatized misconception that they portray as well with other disorders they have in the show.

Edward Nygma is heavily coded autistic and even semi-confirmed by the creators. And he is regularly ostracized for his “quirks”

A character mentions that another character they have not seen in years has gained weight in The Beginning... (S5E12). It isn't a joke, but it's worth noting.

There are actually a couple acknowledgements of nonbinary people. It's not explicit representation or anything, but it's a nice gesture.

edward nygma seems to be meant to have D.I.D, however, this is represented extremely poorly, and the disorder is referred to as "multiple personality disorder" in at least one episode.

A canonically LGBT character dies permanently in Destiny Calling (S3E21). Canonically LGBT characters appear to die, or die and are later resurrected, in All Happy Families Are Alike (S1E22), The Gentle Art Of Making Enemies (S3E14), & Heavydirtysoul (S3E22).

Relationships, no; however, a recurring character has feelings for his sister. They do not have a romantic relationship, and he is very abusive towards her; she actively wants him dead. Discussed mostly in Look Into My Eyes (S3E3), New Day Rising (S3E4), & Follow The White Rabbit (S3E6).
There are also some iffy comments between a brother and sister in the first half of season 2. Additional iffy moment in Prisoners (S2E16) when a woman tries to seduce her step-sibling (not reciprocated, incest framed as disgusting).
