Portrayed by Bobby Brown

Bobby Brown is a Western District Officer portrayed by the actor with the same name.


Bobby Brown is a Western District uniformed officer.

Season OneEdit

Bobby Brown is a Western District uniformed officer. He was the first officer on scene at the shooting of William Gant. He was also at the Brandon Wright crime scene. Detective Jimmy McNulty later enlisted Brown to help watch the home of Wallace.

Season ThreeEdit

When Major Colvin institutes the Hamsterdam initiative Brown is one of the officers freed up to be assigned to investigate complaints rather than perform radio car patrols and he solves a church burglary case.

Season FourEdit

Brown was later present with Sergeant Ellis Carver to both warn and arrest Namond Brice for selling drugs on a pre-indicted corner.

Season FiveEdit

Brown is livid about the withholding of his overtime pay and is insubordinate in Carver's first roll-call briefing as Sergeant in charge. Brown is involved in a parking lot brawl with another officer over the poor state of a vehicle he hands over. Later, Brown is the first officer at a suspicious death that is investigated by Detective McNulty—the death is later ruled natural as predicted by Brown and McNulty.


Brown's character is strikingly similar to a Baltimore police officer also called Bob Brown, played by another actor featured in David Simon's miniseries, The Corner. Bobby J. Brown is also featured in The Corner as another officer.
