Capt. Sharon Raydor- Mary McDonnell
Head of Major Crimes, Capt. Sharon Raydor leads the department with a rule-based, team-oriented approach, sharing the credit with the people with whom she works. Having taken on the role as Rusty's guardian, Raydor is challenged with caring for a delinquent teen who is also the key witness in an upcoming murder trial. Though her intentions are seemingly good, Raydor's ability to be a non-biased guardian will be challenged this season, and her team will continue to question her leadership.
