|Officer - Atlanta Police Department|
Pete Walden is an officer with the Atlanta Police Department. He is located outside the Cordon when the outbreak occurs and works closely with Alex Carnahan. He has good relationships with Lex and Chief Besser, even though he is prejudiced against black people.
Walden accompanies Jake Riley to apprehend Sayid Nassir. While Jake takes Sayid to the Atlanta Midtown Hospital, Pete stays outside the outbreak area. When the Cordon is enforced, Walden is seen pushing a young black man, Xander Paulson, onto the pavement. Lex Carnahan intervenes to stop the assault.
He is part of the team sent to secure the breach in the Cordon.
It is his daughter Lorelai's 8th birthday; he has a present for her on his desk. He is on watch duty with Meese when Lex arrives and brings them food; he asks about Lorelai's birthday and tells Walden he will take his place.
He is part of the team charged to handle the food drop, and questions the ability of Jake's team to get organized with 9 cops. Later when Meese falls into the Cordon, he gets Lex and gets very angry when Lex says he can't get Meese out. When a black officer sides with Lex, he comments "Evidently, the color blue doesn't matter to some of you".
He calls in sick like several other officers from Lex's team because they disagree with Lex's decision not to get Meese out of the Cordon.
Pete is medium height with brown hair.
