The detectives in San Macros, Captain Alameda and Lieutenant Plato, are thinly disguised versions of Captain Stottlemeyer and Lieutenant Disher. Alameda has the same mustache as Stottlemeyer and Plato is Spanish for "dish" or "plate". Additionally, Alameda and Plato wear the same suits that Stottlemeyer and Disher are wearing in this episode. This is actually the start of a recurring trope (more common to see in the series of Monk novels by Lee Goldberg) that every police department that Monk consults for has equivalents of Stottlemeyer and Disher (the novels "Mr. Monk Goes to Germany" and "Mr. Monk Is Miserable" are good examples of this).

Lt. Randall Disher: I'm sure he knew, sir.
Capt. Stottlemeyer: [laughs] I'm sure he did. The son of a bitch knew everything. I want a full-dress funeral. I want the governor there. I want the entire department there with black armbands and white gloves.
Lt. Randall Disher: Sir, Monk wasn't on active duty. We can't go full dress.
Capt. Stottlemeyer: ...
