About Him

Overview... captain of the LAPD in the 1950s. Dudley Smith decides who rises and who falls in the police department. Detectives and rookie officers alike grovel at Dudley’s feet and listen to his every word, including his belief that it is best to shoot a guilty man in the back if it serves the greater good.

Personality... old-fashioned, rebellious, and secretive. He wants the criminals to stay right where they are, and the police to have a reason to fight. He pulls the strings behind the curtain, presenting things with a personal touch that makes it almost impossible to disagree with him, no matter how wrong he is.
