Unit: Gang (Day)
Title/Rank: Officer
Years on Force: 11

Born and raised in Roxbury's Cape Verdean immigrant community, Manny Canuto is proud to protect the neighborhood he's always called home. Having grown up on the same streets as many of the suspected criminals he sees every day, Manny is tapped into much of the gang activity across the city. He works tirelessly to arrest violent perps while, at the same time, trying to convince as many as he can that that there are better life choices than joining a gang. Manny still lives in Roxbury, right behind his parents. And with his mother constantly wondering when he's finally going to settle down with a nice girl and give her some grandchildren, life away from the job isn't exactly quiet either.
