White Officer
Caucasian
A young police officer, in his late 20s, is fresh from a department transfer to the LAPD. He is naïve and unsure in his new surroundings and must quickly learn the way of the streets. He believes in upholding the merits of the law and treating all men as equal.

Black Officer
African-American
An ex-military, late 30s-40s, suffers from hatred towards his race. He believes that all black men deserve to be punished because of the actions of others. An extremely deep character, who struggles with holding back his rage against the black community.
