Sergeant Franco is a police officer who appears to be under Sergeant Wu and works in the Homicide Department. He appears to share many of Wu's duties and possibly fills in for Sergeant Wu whenever the latter is busy elsewhere.
He was present at Ryan Showalter's condominium when Nick Burkhardt and Hank Griffin arrived at the crime scene. He told them that there weren't any witnesses and that video from surveillance cameras was being downloaded. Franco also informed them of Showalter's girlfriend, Amy Lewis, who found his body. Back at the precinct, he told the detectives that they got a hit on the woman's finger they found and that the same fingerprint was found at crime scenes in Phoenix five years before.
Franco was at the scene of the murder of the Weller couple. He later called Hank after finding Dimitri Sknotos' abandoned and salvaged car and stayed at the scene until they arrived. He tried to capture a man lurking in the nearby abandoned warehouse, but the man injured Franco's hand and escaped.
Franco was in a patrol car watching Clint Vickers' vehicle when it was ID'd. When Nick and Hank arrived, he pointed it out to them and guessed that the suspects they were looking for were in the building of which the vehicle was parked outside. Franco told them he hadn't seen any movement in or out of the building. As Nick and Hank closed in, Nick told Franco to cover the back.
Franco was assigned to watch Hank's house after it became clear that Hank was a potential target of Akira Kimura, who was looking for the Coins of Zakynthos. When Hank arrived home, he told him that he hadn't seen anything going on. However, Franco later heard gunshots from inside Hank's home and went inside to investigate. Hank pointed his gun at Franco upon seeing him enter the room he was in, and after Franco got him to lower his weapon and asked him who he was shooting at, he, Hank, and some of the police began to inspect some of the damage inside Hank's home as a result of Kimura having broken in at an unknown earlier time.
Franco was among several Portland police officers that arrived at Nick's house after his fight with Akira Kimura (along with the help of Kelly Burkhardt). Franco noticed Kimura's stab wound in the chest when he and Wu turned his body over and asked Nick about, who said it must have happened in the fight.
After receiving a phone call warning that a Nuckelavee had been sent to Portland, Captain Renard called Franco into his office and gave him a list of all arriving flights to Portland. He told Franco that they had received a warning about a male fugitive arriving to Portland from Rome via JFK and asked Franco to get all the names of anyone matching that itinerary. Franco later returned and found three people that matched but noted that one of them was unaccounted for and that a cab and its driver went missing within 30 minutes of his plane arrival.
Franco described the details of Brandon Kingston's crime scene to Nick and Hank when they arrived. Franco thought that whoever killed him used a hunting knife or a saw.
Franco informed Renard that the hospital called and were wondering when he would make a statement because Donna Reynolds was going to be released in 20 minutes.
Later, Franco, along with Nick, Hank, Renard, Wu, and Ryan Smulson, watched the video of Adrian Zayne's forced confession via branding that had been uploaded to the internet. He was at the precinct when Zayne's co-conspirator, Richard Berna, was brought in for questioning, but when Nick and Hank were just about to arrest Berna, Franco lamented over Berna being released, which Nick and Hank denied doing. Franco informed them that somebody cut him loose because he had walked out, and Hank then told Franco to get SERT (Special Emergency Response Team) out to Berna's house.
Franco obtained information from the Bank Teller about the robbery at the First Cascadian Bank. He then told Nick and Hank that there were three robbers, they were all wearing some kind of animal masks, and security cameras that caught it all on tape were being reviewed.
Franco, who had been promoted to sergeant, arrived with Wu at the house where Richard Mulpus was rampaging and found the body of Lilly O'Hara. He was attacked by Mulpus, and when Wu attacked Mulpus and was knocked down, Franco shot and killed him.
Franco arrived to Trubel's room, where Wu was sitting on the bed looking at the Grimm diaries. Franco told him that Nick and Hank were there, so Wu and Franco met them outside the house. Wu recognized Trubel, and Juliette said that she had been staying with them. Nick told Wu and Franco that she was the one who killed the shooter, which surprised them both. Nick told them he tried to kill her after he shot Renard. Nick and Hank went inside with Wu and Franco to talk to Detectives Meacham and Pogue, as they were handling the case.
He brought in the previous night's crime report to Renard's office as Renard had requested. Renard specifically wanted to know if there were any reports of aggravated assaults, and he had Franco look into one report specifically and check with the victim for a possible description of the attacker. Franco returned to his office to let him know that the victim, named James Waddell, was attacked at 2:45 AM next to the Skidmore Fountain. Franco told him that there were no witnesses, and he couldn't provide a description of who assaulted him. Renard told Franco that he didn't want him to check on the victim at the hospital when Franco asked.
He was the officer doing surveillance on Captain Renard's home after Nick, Hank, and Renard had found Henrietta murdered in her home. He asked Nick and Hank what he was supposed to be looking for, and they told him to let them know if anyone left or entered Renard's home. He asked if they were after the Captain again, but Hank just told him maybe and that they didn't know yet.
He later called Nick to let him know that the Captain was headed to the precinct.
Part 1, "Deep Freeze"Edit
Part 3 "Tight Squeeze"Edit
He and Wu cautiously enter Bud's shop with guns drawn in response to Bud's 911 call. When Bud emerges from the freezer, they both look at him and the zombie attacks from behind. All three retreat to the freezer which Wu locks with a wrench before calling for backup on his radio.
Part 4 "Dance with the Dämmerzustand"Edit
When Wu hears a voice outside and opens the freezer door he watches while Hank fells the zombie with one punch.
