He has an indifferent attitude towards politics, often taking on the mayor and numerous reporters who misinterpret his actions. He tries hard not to judge people, and tends to purse his lips together when hearing bad news or the horrific details of an ongoing case.
Police Commissioner Roy Alquist is the head of the Taren City Police Department. The Commissioner is appointed by the Mayor, and serves at the Mayor’s pleasure.
Alquist comes from a long line of police officers and was the first person to rise from Police Cadet to Police Commissioner, holding all of the department’s ranks, except for Chief of Department, and Deputy Commissioner, having been promoted directly from Bureau Chief to First Deputy Commissioner in 1999.
Roy is a devout Catholic and has good relationships with his local church and his city’s archdiocese, to whom he talks about personal and police matters.
