Detective Kevin Atwater is a former patrol officer for the CPD. He was partnered with Officer Kim Burgess. Since season 2 he is a Detective with the Intelligence Unit.


Atwater takes pride in his job as a patrol officer. Usually, he is the driver of a squad car in a partnership arrangement. He has been undercover with Olinsky once, and is seen to be very good at it.

Both Atwater and Burgess are constant targets of Desk Sergeant Platt's attitude. However, they are generally able to laugh it off after shift.

When Platt assigns Atwater and Burgess a new squad car, the car is not to be damaged. However, during an ill-fated arrest of a psychotic suspect, the mirror of the car is knocked off. Atwater uses an old connection from his neighborhood to fix the mirror.

At the end of season one he is promoted to Hank Voight's Intelligence unit.

Kevin Atwater is portrayed by LaRoyce Hawkins.
