Detective Brett Hanscom is a close friend and partner of Chase Quinn and Andrew Jordan during their time with the Palo Alto Police Department. He is played by Douglas Cowell. He appears briefly during a 4th of July celebration at the Jordan family home where he can be seen jumping into the pool and playing with Rhea (SA: Sien Souhitent). It is unknown what happened to him following the events in neighboring San Jose or the incident with Prescott, however later in the same episode when discussing Melissa's tattoo, she mentions her friend Brett "from back home." It is generally assumed that she is refering to the same person.
