The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) is the local agency responsible for the enforcement of law in the city of Los Angeles.


Season One

For an episode-by-episode summary, see LAPD: Season One History.

FBI Agent Audrey Hanson recruits LAPD officer Matt Parkman to assist in her investigation of Sylar. He helps her to track down and capture Ted Sprague, an evolved human with the power of induced radioactivity and whom Audrey thinks could be Sylar.

Audrey directs a FBI SWAT team to raid Primatech Paper Co.'s Texas on a hunch from Matt Parkman, but the raid turns up nothing of interest and so she terminates their partnership.

Matt goes back to Los Angeles and faces a LAPD disciplinary hearing for his actions. The three LAPD captains overseeing the hearing sentence Matt to a six month suspension.

Jump, Push, Fall

Matt has rejoined the LAPD as a detective. He interrogates a suspect about Keppler, but throws a chair at a manifestation of Sylar during the interrogation. The suspect is so scared he gives up Keppler's name and location.


Matt and Mike raid Keppler's home, searching for drugs.


  • When Matt becomes a detective with the LAPD, his badge number is 491. (Ink)
