Henry “Hank” Voight (Jason Beghe) is the head of the Chicago P.D. Intelligence Unit, being the main head of the show, he has had incredible moments Throughout each of the seasons of the famous series as the tough and rebellious policeman who often secretly violates the rules and the law. However, there are some curiosities that you may not have seen about him.

Rank, license plate and radio code

Voight has been the only character from Chicago P.D., who has turned down a big position in the police, after he was proposed to accept the position of police lieutenant, but he preferred to stay as a sergeant, because his passion and style was to be on the streets to take down criminals.

Another thing he has kept intact is his police badge, on which you can see his number, 32419. Its shape, color and number reflect the rank of the officer who owns it, while that of his other companions is silver, hi’s golden. His radio code is “5021 Adam”, whenever he needs to communicate with other officers or call for backup he uses the code, or simply abbreviates it to 5021.


It is true that Voight has his entire team to carry out different missions, but he has only really worked very closely with five different partners, including detective Jimmy Shi (Mark Dacasco) , with detective Denny Woods (Mykelti Williamson), his great friend detective Alvin Olinsky (Elias Koteas), Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) and police officer Adam Ruzek (Patrick Flueger).
