Chief Fletcher Daniels

Character

Fletcher Daniels was the chief of police – formerly an Inspector and the Captain of the 23rd Precinct. He has many men under him, but he seems to pay special attention to Frank, partly because he had worked with Frank before he became chief and partly because Hill Street is the most dangerous precinct in the city. Daniels respects Furillo's integrity, though it often frustrates him, as it interferes with what he considers effective policy or political expediency. Several times he accuses Frank of disloyalty. Though not provably corrupt, Daniels is an opportunist with very little conscience. Because of his no-nonsense approach to police work, Daniels finds a kindred spirit in Howard Hunter, though Hunter is not within the Chief's inner echelon. Ray Calletano finds the Chief particularly irritating.
