In 1998 Dietl's autobiography One Tough Cop: The Bo Dietl Story was made into the film One Tough Cop starring Stephen Baldwin as Bo Dietl. The plot in Abel Ferrara's crime drama Bad Lieutenant is mainly inspired by Dietl's 1981 investigation of the rape of a young nun.
Dietl played the detective who arrests Henry Hill in Martin Scorsese's 1990 film, Goodfellas.
An interview with Dietl is included in the documentary Fabled Enemies by Jason Bermas of Loose Change fame. Dietl speaks about his relationship with FBI agent John P. O'Neill who was the leading expert on Osama bin Laden until his resignation from the FBI in August 2001 to become head of security at the World Trade Center, where he was killed in the September 11 attacks.
Dietl was an associate producer for The Bone Collector and producer for the movie Table One.
Dietl plays himself in Scorsese's 2013 film The Wolf of Wall Street.
Dietl is a frequent guest of Don Imus on the Imus in the Morning radio program on WABC radio. He appears regularly on Fox News Channel shows, including, Hannity, and Geraldo at Large. He had also appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The O'Reilly Factor, and had a guest-starring role on the NBC crime drama Law & Order.
The Republican and Conservative Parties of New York State for the 6th Congressional District nominated Dietl for the U.S. Congress in 1986.
In 1989 President George H. W. Bush appointed Dietl as co-chairman of the National Crime Commission. In 1994 Governor George Pataki appointed Dietl chairman of the New York State Security Guard Advisory Council.
He served as security consultant to the Republican National Convention and as director of security for the New York State Republican Convention.
On December 6, 2010, Dietl joined Fox News contributors Joel Mowbray and Bob Beckel in calling for the assassination of Julian Assange.
In 2014, Dietl announced his intention to run for Mayor of New York City in 2017, initially intending to run in the Democratic primary against incumbent Mayor Bill de Blasio. In 2017, Dietl announced he would no longer be challenging de Blasio in the primaries, running instead as an independent, due to a paperwork filing error.
On May 4, 2017, the Wall Street Journal reported that Dietl said he was hired by Fox News network management to discredit the harassment claims by former anchor Gretchen Carlson and former producer Andrea Mackris against Roger Ailes and Bill O'Reilly.
