Jay Landsman

A survivor of the bureaucratic and stat-driven wars within the police headquarters building, Landsman is a squad supervisor of many years' experience. Competent and cautious, he is as loyal to his troops as he can safely be - often trying to protect himself and his squad from the brutalities and whims of his superiors. A giant panda of a man with a subtle, prevailing decency, Landsman's appeal is often his perverse and dark sense of humor - born of realism and a deep understanding of the institution in which he serves.
