Arleen Gonzales is a lieutenant in the Robbery-Homicide Division of the Los Angeles Police Department on Law & Order: LA.

Biography[edit | edit source]

Arleen Gonzales is the Commanding Officer of the LAPD Robbery-Homicide Division. She is a cool professional who keeps her private life private and has a passionate advocate for her detectives. In the episode, "East Pasadena," it's revealed that she has an 11-year-old son, but was only mentioned.

In "El Sereno," when a defendant's lawyer uses an edited tape of Gonzales (which portrays her as a racist & a bigot) to accuse the LAPD of racial profiling (because the defendant was the only African-American employee), Gonzales comes out as a lesbian on the stand, stating that before she could understand the prejudices of others, she had to understand her own prejudices.

Arlene also has a law degree. She pulled a few strings to get Ricardo Morales into Homicide as T.J.'s new partner. She was seen rattled when Rex Winters died in the hospital after getting shot.
