One of the standouts in the cast is Officer Kevin Atwater, played by LaRoyce Hawkins.
“I’m grateful to be that voice to speak for both cultures,” Hawkins told the Chicago Tribune, “the black culture and the cop culture.”
This handsome star was born and raised in Harvey, Illinois, a southern suburb of Chicago.
Hawkins attended Thornton High School, where he was recruited to play basketball.
His grandfather’s advice of “choose what makes you feel better,” stuck with him, so Hawkins left the basketball team sophomore year when it felt right and joined the speech team.
