Because he is both black and L.A.-born and raised, Hondo feels deeply loyal not only to his “brothers in blue” but also to the people they serve. This makes him particularly qualified to lead the team and build a bridge between the force and the community. As such, the series is notable for its depiction of real-life tensions between police and the African-American community.
