Bobby Brown is a uniformed officer in the Western District of Baltimore City.
He is the responding officer at the crime scene of Brandon Wright's murder.
Detective Jimmy McNulty later enlisted Brown to help watch the home of Wallace.
Season Three Edit
Brown was livid about the witholding of his overtime pay and is insubordinate in Ellis 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 Jimmy McNulty - the death is later ruled natural as predicted by Brown and McNulty.
Brown is played by Bobby J. Brown. According to The Corner: A Year in the Life of an Inner-City Neighborhood, the character is an homage to the actual Western District patrolman Bob Brown.
