Denny Woods is the ex-partner of Hank Voight, turned corrupt independent auditor assigned to oversee the police department. He is portrayed by Mykelti Williamson.


Season 5

Upon becoming an independent auditor, Woods starts to exploit his position in a secret vendetta against Voight for events occurring 32 years ago, when they were still partners. This becomes even more present after a failed rescue attempt, in which his daughter, Brianna, is held hostage and shot in "Anthem", and continues even after she recovers in "Breaking Point".

At the end of Season 5, Woods is arrested by Internal Affairs for bribing a witness, having been investigated by Voight himself. [1]
