Season 2Edit

Captain Aceveda comes out with the police uniform, he is the one also applauding him. David later tells Vic that it is the required monthly street duty for the captains.

When Tulips went to the Barn to bring information against her ex-boyfriend, Herk, Shane rejected her. She then approached Brent and started giving her a statement. While he was filling it out, Shane came by and told Brent to forget it because he would take the case.

Some time later, Brent was working the murder of two teenagers. After doing some interviews, he stopped following on the case. When Jeffrey Cole and Lydell Crouch disappeared, Detective Dutch Wagenbach suspected it was the same modus operandi, so Captain David Aceveda recommended him to talk to Brent and consolidate the two cases.

After the murder of Claudette's ex-husband, Captain David Aceveda gave Dutch the case. When Dutch suggested he give it to Brent or Marlon, Aceveda told him that they would be a little short-handed that day and that the case was his. He then called Detectives Kirkland and Marlon up to his office.


  • Although it is not seen on screen, it is heavily implied that Kirkland was fired by Aceveda by orders of Chief Tom Bankston.
