After his nephew Justin was killed, Patrick dropped his dream of playing in major league baseball and became a cop instead. He started the first e-crimes unit in San Diego. During the search for Lucy seven years ago, Patrick was nearly killed during an explosion. When he woke up from a two-year coma, technology had passed him by, and he joined RCK at the urging of his brother Jack. Patrick and Sean became fast friends, and partners in RCK East. Though Patrick initially disapproved of Sean’s relationship with his sister Lucy, he came around and is now supportive.
