PremiseEdit

The series centers on Sergeant Daniel "Hondo" Harrelson. A lifetime Los Angeles local and former Marine, Hondo has been tapped to lead a new "last stop" Special Weapons and Tactics unit. Because he is L.A. born and raised, Hondo feels deeply loyal not only to his "brothers in blue" but also to the people they serve. This makes him particularly qualified to lead the team and build a bridge between the force and the community.

Cast and charactersEdit

  • Shemar Moore as Sergeant II Daniel "Hondo" Harrelson Jr., a Los Angeles native who was promoted to team leader in a blatant attempt to ease the tensions between the community and the LAPD. He knows everyone in the neighborhood and treats them with respect and they usually give him information pertinent to his cases. He was in a clandestine relationship with Jessica Cortez but they were ultimately forced to break it off to protect their careers despite both mutually accepting their love for each other.
  • Stephanie Sigman as Captain Jessica Cortez (seasons 1 & 2),[7] Commanding Officer of the LAPD Metropolitan Division and Hondo's lover, and then former lover. She is a respected officer who has plans to improve the relationship between the LAPD and the citizens of Los Angeles, despite some resistance from the rank and file. In the second-season finale, she accepts an offer for an FBI assignment and leaves the LAPD to go undercover. By the start of the third season, she has seemingly taken the assignment permanently.
  • Alex Russell as Officer III James "Jim" Street, a new transfer from the Long Beach Police Department. His mother Karen is in prison for murdering her abusive husband/Street's father; she was arrested by former S.W.A.T Team Leader Buck Spivey.
  • Lina Esco as Officer III Christina "Chris" Alonso, a former canine officer and (originally) one of the two females assigned to S.W.A.T.
  • Kenny Johnson as Officer III+1 Dominique Luca, a third-generation S.W.A.T officer. Johnson previously starred on The Shield, also created by Shawn Ryan.
  • Peter Onorati as Sergeant II Jeff Mumford (season 1; recurring season 2), the team leader of another S.W.A.T Team alongside Hondo's. He has been divorced three times; in "Payback", he gets engaged again after only a month long courtship. In the conclusion of "Jack", he announces his resignation from S.W.A.T. after being shot earlier in the episode.
  • Jay Harrington as Sergeant II David "Deacon" Kay, a ten year veteran of the S.W.A.T. team who was passed over for promotion in favor of Hondo. He is the only member of the team to be married and has children. In "Shaky Town", it is revealed that he speaks fluent French. In "School", it is revealed that his daughter, Lila, is named after a school shooting victim.
  • David Lim as Officer III Victor Tan, a former officer with the LAPD Vice Squad. He joined S.W.A.T. three years prior to the series.
  • Patrick St. Esprit as Commander Robert Hicks (recurring season 1; season 2 – present), a senior officer with the LAPD Special Operations Bureau. He is a widower and a longtime friend of the Kay family. St. Esprit was promoted to a series regular for season 2.[8]
  • Amy Farrington as Lieutenant Detective Piper Lynch (season 3), an experienced detective from LAPD Hollywood Division appointed by the mayor as a tactical consultant to Hondo's team.[9]
