"Gun! Gun! Gun!."
—This officer warns everyone that one of the criminals has a gun

Linden County Police Officer is a character in AMC's The Walking Dead. He is an officer of Linden County Sheriff's Department.


Season 1

"Days Gone Bye"

a group of Bank Robbers are bring pursued by two cruisers containing the Linden County Sheriff's Department officers. The car, with the suspects inside, speeds over the spike strip, shredding the tires. The driver loses control of the wheel and the vehicle flips off the road, rolling several times before coming to a rough stop upside down in a field. "Holy shit," mutters Shane, cocking his shotgun as the officers descend on the vehicle.

Rick carefully approaches the overturned car. A man emerges from the vehicle. This officer notices that the criminal has a gun and shouts "Gun! Gun! Gun!". Rick yells at him to drop his pistol, but the man shoots directly at Rick and hits him in the chest. Shane shoots the gunman, killing him as Rick falls to the ground.

A second man emerges from the vehicle brandishing a shotgun, but is also shot to death. "I'm alright!" Rick shouts, the gunman having shot his Kevlar bulletproof vest. Shane approaches Rick as he pulls himself off the ground. "Shane, you do not tell Lori that happened! Ever!" Rick commands Shane as he looks at his vest.

Meanwhile, a third gunman unnoticed by everyone crawls out of the car and through the grass. The man fires his gun and hits Rick in the side, where his vest does not protect him. He falls to the ground bleeding as Shane shoots and kills the third man before rushing to Rick's aid. He begs for Rick to stay with him, barking at Leon to call an ambulance, but Rick remains motionless. This man approaches Rick to make sure he is alright.


Nothing is known about about this officers life since the outbreak began. He was most likely, at the time, attempting to aid FEMA and the military in evacuating civilians, although his status is unknown.
