8 Hot Latino Cops On TV!

Okay, so maybe we just have a thing for law enforcement figures, but we can't be the only ones who go loca for a man in uniform? 

When we first saw Jon Seda take the screen as Detective Antonio Dawson, we knew Chicago PD was going to become our new go-to crime drama. Luckily for us, Seda isn't the only hunky Latino who's donned a uniform on screen. 

Check out our list of the hottest Latino TV cops, plus catch Jon Seda on Chicago PD every Wednesday night at 10/9CST on NBC! 

1. Jon Seda

Detective Antonio Dawson

Jon Seda (aka Chris Perez from Selena) plays Detective Antonio Dawson on Chicago PD, the spinoff to the popular show Chicago Fire. Luckily for us, Seda is no stranger to “cop shows” -- the sexy Puerto Rican played also detective on NBC’s Homicide: Life on the Streets. 


2. Jimmy Smits


3. Danny Pino

Detective Nick Amaro

Sure, Nick Amaro, played by Danny Pino, has had his ups-and-downs as a detective on Law & Order: SVU. Despite this, Pino has managed to craft a character who is sympathetic, lovable, and, not to mention, completely sexy. 


4. Steven Michael Quezada

Steven Gomez

DEA agent Steven Gomez was, by far, the most overlooked character on the hit series Breaking Bad. His relationship with Walter White’s brother-in-law, Hank Schrader, was perhaps the most genuine friendship of the series, and Steven Michael Quezada’s character provided much-needed comic relief to the otherwise dark drama. While we won’t give too much away, Agent Gomez deserved much better than his sad fate. 


5. Jon Huertas

Javier Esposito:

For six seasons, Jon Huertas has played smoldering homicide Detective Javier Esposito on ABC’s Castle.  The tough, strong detective remained surprisingly lovable  mostly because of his dry sense of humor. 


6. Nestor Carbonell

Sheriff Alex Romero: 

When Ringer was cancelled in 2012 we were devastated. Nestor Carbonell’s turn as FBI Agent Victor Machado on the shortlived show had us begging to see the Latino in uniform once again. Luckily for us, A&E heard our cry, and cast Carbonell as Sheriff Alex Romero in the dark drama The Bates Motel. While Sheriff Romero may appear to be the moral center of the town, his questionable behavior leads us to believe that there may be more to his story. We can’t wait to see what’s next for his character in upcoming seasons. 


7. Adam Rodriguez

Eric Delko

Adam Rodriguez played Miami-Dade Police Detective Eric Delko for 10 seasons on CSI: Miami. The fingerprint, tire, and drug identification expert was a total heartthrob, and we couldn’t have been more disappointed when the show ended after its ten-year run in 2012. Hopefully, we’ll be seeing Rodriguez back on screen  (and in uniform) soon enough! 


8. Erik Estrada

Frank “Ponch” Poncherello:

For six years, CHiPs followed the lives of two motorcycle police officers, including Officer Frank “Ponch” Poncherello, played by Puerto Rican actor Erik Estrada. Somehow, his macho, trouble-prone character managed to be lovable and seductive.
