Detective Hailey Upton is a member of the Chicago Police Intelligence Unit.

Biography

As a child, her father ran a diner in Greektown. Mr. Upton was very abusive, as he would regularly beat her mother, brothers, and herself. Despite the abuse, her mother remained at the house with her father even long after she and her siblings moved away.

When the diner was robbed in 2003, by which time she was 12, she stayed by the desk of Sergeant Trudy Platt, who was part of a Robbery-Homicide unit at the time, until it was solved, all the while worrying for the health of her father. This event, combined with the countless childhood abuse, inspired Upton to become a policewoman, where she originally became a member of that same Robbery-Homicide unit.

Because of her awkwardness, Jay implies that Hailey was once involved with him, but that is never confirmed. After approached by Voight, she is forced to work with McGrady on a case. When responding to a call from McGrady, she is shaken when he is found shot. After investigating his death, Upton finds evidence to prove that McGrady actually committed suicide. Reluctantly she attends McGrady’s funeral and is disgusted that he was being revered as a hero. Later confronted by Voight as they leave, Hailey says that while McGrady was a good cop, he was not a good man and had little other redeeming qualities, recounting his past actions such as cheating on his wife and actively trying to sabotage her police career.

Hailey asks Voight for permission to bring back an old undercover identity to help take down the meth ring spearheaded by a former criminal contact, Ron Booth. After reviewing the old case file, Voight asks her about Garrett Thompson, Hailey's old partner. Hailey reveals that she was under as his girlfriend. Booth never liked him and one day Garret was gone. Hailey insisted that he was killed, though the body was never recovered. Hailey asks Voight to put her under so that she can introduce Jay as a potential buyer and bust Booth. Hailey eventually gets in contact with Booth and tries to take him down. While talking about the past, Booth apologizes for what happened at a New Year's party. Jay gets curious and reaches out to Hailey's old case officer, Jeff Rafferty, to find out what really happened to his partner that day. He later confronts Hailey and asks what happened.

She connects with the suspect, by opening up about her own abusive childhood. After finally getting a confession out of Devin, she is congratulated by Voight on her job well done. Hailey insists she made up those stories about her past when Ruzek asks her, saying that she was playing Devin. Later in the day, Jay pulls Hailey aside and shows her a credible security footage which shows that Devin was somewhere else during the murder. This proves that Devin was not the actual killer.

Relationships

Partners

Erin Lindsay

Erin and Hailey meet in season 4 episode 21, Fagin. They get partnered up after Hailey joins the Unit in in the next episode. This causes a little awkwardness between her, Erin, and Jay due to the fact that Jay and Erin had previously dated and had been partners for the past 4 years. She and Erin are sent to find a victim and a suspect and the two of them have an honest conversation on the drive over. Hailey states that she didn't intend to "throw sand in the gears," when she inquires about Erin's relationship with Halstead, which Erin tells her, "not to worry about it," implying that it wasn't her fault. Erin adds, "It was probably time for a change anyway." They show that they can work well together and get along at the same time while talking to a suspect. Later in the episode, Erin uses her gun against an offender find the location of a missing tender age boy. Hailey pleads for to stop her, but Erin tells her to leave. When she doesn't, the commander walks in and sees the situation. He benches Erin and Hailey for the rest of the case. Erin and Hailey are seen together waiting on the rest of the unit to get back from finding the kid, only to have Halstead and Olinsky tell them that kid didn't make it. Erin is notified that she and Hailey have to go up against the review board the next day for Erin's actions against the offender while he was in the interrogation room. In the next episode/season finale, Fork in the Road, Erin and Hailey finally go to the review board. Erin tells the board what happened, without a lawyer (FOP representative) present. Hailey goes with her FOP and backs up Erin, solidifying her loyalty to the unit. Eventually, Erin is forced to take the job offer from the FBI to save her mother and leaves Chicago.

Jay Halstead

Jay and Hailey meet in season 4 episode 21, Fagin. Initially, Jay and Hailey were on uneasy terms with one another because of a case that brought her unit (Robbery-Homicide) against his. After joining Intelligence in the next episode, and she becomes Jay's partner at the start of season 5, their relationship starts off rocky. This is due to the fact that Jay was still dealing with the heartbreak of Erin leaving, but slowly their relationship begins to smooth out; both become good friends and good partners.

Throughout their time as partners, they rely on each other as confidants and for comfort during rough cases. Hailey is the first to suggest Jay get some help after an undercover operation gone awry triggers his underlying PTSD. He declines saying “it’s not his thing”, to which she responds she will have to find another partner if he didn't. This results in him scheduling a therapy session and finally opening up during them. She often asks for updates regarding his sessions and is happy to know that it benefits him. Returning the favor, Jay visits her after a similar operation turned personal for Hailey and he realizes how deeply it affected her, deciding to share a drink with her instead of going to Molly’s with the rest of the Unit.

Over time, she and Jay grew to trust each other more as partners and began to develop a close friendship outside of work. They develop and understanding of each other deep enough to often communicate through eye contact, and they seek out each others advice and know when to step in to help each other out if they think one of them is at acting out during a case. They respect each others opinions and have voiced out their admiration and devotion of each other as their partners, both revealing that they'd follow the other anywhere. Their complete trust in each other is expressed by Hailey, in Good Men, saying "I trusted you from the day I met you." She also reassures him, in Outrage, that she'd never think he murdered their suspect. In Reckoning, when the unit faces disbanding, Jay promises that he's going wherever she goes next in the job. In the same episode, he also protects Hailey by covering her with a vest and his own body when their surveillance van gets shot at. Neither end up injured.

In Intimate Violence, Hailey opens up more to Jay about her own traumatic past, sharing stories of how her father abused her mother. She doesn’t mention him abusing her and her brothers though, which she said he did in season 6’s True or False.

During Tender Age, the pair share a kiss after Hailey decides to not take a job offered to her by the FBI in NY.

Romance

Jay Halstead - Upstead

Jay and Hailey were partnered in the first episode of season 5 following his ex-girlfriend and former partner, Erin Lindsay's departure from Chicago. From the start they showed a functional professional partnership, although they would sometimes show rocky patches during the first half of the season due to Halstead still trying to get over Erin leaving. However, they gradually become good friends and confidants, having the other's back during cases. Even in the first episode of season 5, Hailey expresses to him, “if there’s anything you need, please let me know”, effectively building a solid base for their looming partnership and friendship. It is shown that he cares for her as well in Fallen, where he expresses a similar “Let me know if you need anything” after a previous colleague of her ends up dead.

Season 6 showed their relationship deepening, from Endings where they first butt heads because of Jay acting out after his father dies, ultimately resulting in Hailey breaking down in tears after thinking Jay was dead when she and Ruzek find him shot on the ground. He is there for her in True or False, where a suspect she interrogated kills himself, saying he wants to make sure she's okay. In Trigger, Jay opens up to Hailey about his military past, which is something we've rarely seen in previous seasons. She comforts him and they head off to share drinks. Hailey meanwhile shows guilt about keeping her relationship with Ruzek from Jay, and though Jay insists that he gets it, we see hints of jealousy from him. For example, in Outrage, after having drinks at a bar, he tells her to go meet Adam with a half hearted smile. In Good Men, Hailey reveals that she trusts him completely, enough to follow him blind, which seems to leave him speechless. In Reckoning, when she says Jay will forget about her just fine, he shakes his head, indicating she means more to him than just a partner.

The next step in their relationship is taken when Jay is shot in season 7 episodes 10, Mercy. Not knowing if he's going to survive, in Absolution, causes Hailey to realize the extent of her feelings for him -- as Rojas points out, "it's hard because you love him." This episode also reveals how well the two know each other, as Hailey speaks of Jay's fear of needles (and hospitals in general), and he begs her to get him out of the hospital when he wakes up, saying she knows how much he hates them. At the end of the episode, Hailey comes close to telling Jay how she feels, though they are interrupted by a phone call and she realizes he's not in the right state of mind.

After Hailey is sent to the FBI field office in New York as Voight's way of punishing her for crossing lines. Jay shows concerns that she won't return, but she reassures him that she will because she misses him. In the next episode, he admits to Trudy Platt that he misses her.

After Hailey returns to Chicago, she later receives a permanent job offer from the FBI in Tender Age. Jay is shown to be bothered by this, and at the end of the episode they have a heart to heart conversation at a bar, where Hailey tries to figure out if he wants her to stay or take it. He evades answering as a way of "practicing self preservation", indicating that he'd be hurt by her leaving if he reveals how he feels first. She tells him she doesn't want to take the job because of him and the team. However, she admits that she is afraid that if she "gains something," she'll be "giving something up", insinuating if she reveals how she feels. She might gain a relationship but lose him as a partner, as they both know the struggles of working together while dating. He tells her that doesn't always have to happen, indicating he wants to give them a try, and she finally admits to him that, "it's been a long time since I saw you as just my partner." To this declaration of her feelings, Jay responds by kissing her.

In the following episode, Unforgiven, Jay and Hailey are shown taking the relationship forward spending their first night at Hailey's apartment. Their relationship continues to grow as they balance being partners and their new relationship, occasionally teasing each other. In Signs of Violence Jay decides to take the next step and say I love you to Hailey, but she has a negative reaction and decides to bury herself in work. Jay tries to get her to open up, but she continues to shut him out. Eventually Hailey finally opens up, telling Jay how the words "I love you" reminds her of the past men that leave her once they realize how much baggage she has. Jay assures her that he wants to be with her and isn't "going anywhere" and Hailey finally tells Jay that she loves him so much.

Their relationship is later tested, in Safe, when Voight finds out about the two partners secret relationship and questions Hailey's judgement on a case, wondering whether Hailey sided with Jay because of their romantic relationship or because it was the right decision. After her confrontation with Voight, Hailey later talks to Jay about setting boundaries at work to help her balance work and their relationship. Jay supports her decision but as the case comes to an end, their job comes between their relationship. They seem to recover from their disagreement because in the season 8 finale, The Other Side, Hailey proposes to Jay after going through a traumatic event, scared of not having Jay in her life.

Adam Ruzek - Upzek

Like with Jay, she initially was on uneasy terms with Adam, but later becomes friends with him after joining Intelligence.

While rarely partnered with Ruzek, she is often the one to keep him in line, and is unwilling to blindly follow him in breaking protocol. They were both in a romantic relationship with one another which started as a one-night stand, from Bad Boys to Sacrifice, wherein they both agreed they were better off as friends, as they both had feelings for someone else.

Garrett Thompson

Before joining the Unit, Hailey was once partnered with Garrett on an undercover op together. They were posing as a couple, to try and take down criminal boss, Ronald Booth. Hailey reveals to Jay that Garrett was killed during that operation. During that undercover, Hailey says that Garrett had been "talking ring sizes," indicating that either their UCs, or the two of them, were engaged, or about to be before he disappeared. Also, in Ghosts, Hailey reveals to Jay that she was in love with Garrett and that he had been the one to save her from Booth before he raped and killed her several years ago.

Friends

Trudy Platt

Trudy Platt served as her inspiration to be a cop as a kid.

When they met again, Hailey recognized her last name and mentioned their first meeting to Trudy, who had to recall this until being surprised at how Hailey turned out. Trudy was left with tears of joy after hearing that she had such a great impact on Hailey. Ever since, they remained on good terms.

Vanessa Rojas

Vanessa and Hailey got along really well. After Vanessa transferred to Intelligence, Hailey offered to bunk with her after hearing she doesn't have a place to stay, to which Vanessa was grateful for. Hailey grows really protective of her new room mate and temporary partner.

Kim Burgess

Though Hailey and Kim aren't shown to have that deep of a relationship, but they are friends and have been through a lot together. They were kidnapped, during which they helped each other through it. They've also shared drinks and hung out multiple times. Hailey was shown to have great sympathy for Kim after the latter had a miscarriage. She was also worried and respectful of Kim's feelings around Hailey's relationship with Kim's ex, Ruzek.

Kevin Atwater

Their relationship hasn't been dug into that much either, though they'll exchange occasional fist bumps, indicating a healthy friendship.
