List of minor, recurring characters from the fictional TV show Third Watch who are in the NYPD.


Sergeant Jason Christopher

Sgt Christopher was the sergeant in Seasons 2 and 3. He did not particularly like Bosco. He was engaged to be married at one point, but transferred out of the 55 before being replaced by Maritza Cruz. Played by Brad Beyer.

Officer Brooke Doherty

Brooke did not work at the 55 but was assigned to another precinct. She met and fell in love with Jimmy Doherty at a supermarket, thanks to Jimmy's son Joey, and the pair got married. Brooke left Jimmy after finding out he'd slept with his friend Joe Lombardo's girlfriend at his engagement party, and filed for divorce. Played by Eva LaRue.

Captain Cathal "CT" Finney

Father of Brendan Finney, CT worked in IAB. However he was not as innocent as he appeared - it turned out he had been involved in the death of Tyrone Davis Senior many years earlier. He, Davis Sr and a few others had been corrupt cops, and planned to put the blame on Davis Sr. Davis Sr decided to go to IAB, but Finney found out and arranged for Davis Sr to be murdered.

In the present, Finney was in charge of an operation involving Sgt Maritza Cruz, which involved Detective Sasha Monroe going undercover as an officer. Not long after Brendan started working at the 55, Finney committed suicide as the truth about Ty Davis, Sr was threatened with exposure, and his son made it look like an accident so his family could still claim his pension and benefits.

Played by Charles Haid, apart from a flashback in "Forever Blue" where the younger Finney was played by Jeff Mantel.

Detective "Jelly" Grimaldi

"Jelly" Grimaldi was an overweight veteran homicide detective, often seen chugging coffee from a styrofoam cup, that appeared in seasons 5 and 6. He has known Sully for years. His real first name was never revealed on the show. Played by Joe Badalucco.

Officer Steve Gusler

A rookie during Season 3, Gusler didn't really fit in with the job or the precinct. He was partnered with Bosco on his first day, due to Bosco's partner Faith Yokas being on leave. Bosco did not have much time for the young rookie. Later Gusler was partnered with Faith when Bosco thought about joining ESU. Gusler was always nervous and frightened, and after gravely shooting a fellow officer(accidentally)during a major shootout realized he was not meant for beat cop duty, but later became a police sketch artist. Played by Charlie McWade.

Officer Conrad "Candyman" Jones

Nicknamed because of his love of candy, Candyman was regarded as a good cop by everyone in the precinct, cops and civilians alike. The cops knew that he was prone to taking bribes and robbing drug dealers, but did not say anything about it as otherwise he was a good cop. After finding out that his father had worked with Candyman and had also taken bribes, Ty Davis fought with himself about whether to turn Candyman in especially after seeing him rob a pimp. After Candyman saved his life, Ty decided not to. Played by Wendell Pierce.

Officer Manny Santiago

Manny was a recurring character during the sixth season. He was one of the few not to be intimidated by Maritza Cruz, and was probably one of her closest friends. There was evidence that he had romantic feelings for her. After her death, he laid a red rose on her grave every morning. Manny mentioned a son in one episode but other family members are unknown. Played by Manny Perez.

Lieutenant Bob Swersky

Bob Swersky (named as "Dan" in one episode Frequently refered to as "Lou") was in charge of the 55 Precinct. Fair but firm, he was looked upon as a father figure by many of the cops, especially Bosco. He would often come to the aid of his officers when they were in trouble. Married, to a wife who often put him on a diet, he retired as a Deputy Chief after the series ended to spend time with his 12 grandchildren. Played by Joe Lisi.
