(Diamantino "D" Araujo)
Hometown: Cape Verde Island - moved to Roxbury, Mass., at age 10
Unit: Gang (Day)
Years on Force: 7
"D" Araujo grew up in Roxbury with his best friend and partner, Manny Canuto. They went through school together and entered the police academy at the same time - they are tight. Now, this so-called Cape Verdean Starsky & Hutch, work to protect their old neighborhood from gang violence. D loves to go to the gym and workout but because of the Boston bombing in April, D has decided to train to run a marathon, something he's never done. He wants to show solidarity with his city. The bombers tried to intimidate Boston but D, and hundreds of officers like him, refuses to be deterred from his mission.
