He’s a Vietnam veteran who served in the Marines before he joined the NYPD. He’s widowed with four grown children: Danny, Erin, Jamie, and Joseph.

Henry (Len Cariou) is Frank’s father and a retired police commissioner who usually provides advice to his son and grandchildren. Frank’s middle son, Joe, who was an NYPD Police Detective who died in the line of duty, was involved with the FBI investigating a group of dirty cops (The Blue Templar). Joe was murdered by these dirty cops when his covert investigation into their corruption was getting too close.
The FBI tried to recruit Jamie to pick up Joe’s investigation. Jamie conducted his own covert investigation into Joe’s death. Joe’s murderers tried to kill Jamie by tampering with the brakes on his car but failed. Jaime informed his father Frank, his brother Danny, and his grandfather Henry about his suspicions after the attempt on his life.
