It's set up early on that Wurtz and Ramirez are working for the mob before The Joker shows up.
DENT: My office? You're sitting down there with scum like Wurtz and Ramirez and you're talking about - That's right, Gordon. I almost had your rookie cold on a racketeering beat.
GORDON: I thought you had to go look after your mother, Detective.
RAMIREZ: Checked her back into the hospital.
RAMIREZ: They got me early on - my mother's hospital bills.
