Patrick Mahon is an ineffectual, alcoholic Detective in the Baltimore Police Department.


Season 1Edit

Mahon was an elderly detective from the property unit who briefly worked with the Barksdale detail. Dubbed as a departmental "hump", he and his partner Augustus Polk had not made a single case in property crimes over their last ten years. The two were also regarded as a pair of drunks who were incapable of driving soberly. He is punched by Bodie Broadus, a young drug dealer, when the detail raid the low rise projects. Mahon takes early retirement following his injury, and is last seen encouraging Polk to do the same.


Patrick Mahon is a recurring character in the first season. He is played by guest star Tom Quinn and debuts in "The Detail".
