Lou is a police sergeant, and, by far, the most intelligent and competent officer of the Springfield Police. He is a foil to Chief Wiggum, and often takes the time to point out Wiggum's mistakes (often while a crime, or the pursuit of a criminal is still in progress).


Lou speaks more than his counterpart Eddie. Although he rarely comes up, when he does he is in a police uniform. Lou once said he wants to leave the force as there is more money in private security, nothing ever becomes of this though.[3] His favorite on duty beverage is beer.

Although he has never stated so explicitly, other people around Springfield have insinuated that he is a graduate of Princeton University. Following his undergraduate career, Lou applied and was accepted to law school at an unspecified university, but was forced to drop out as he could not afford the tuition. His talents are abusing power and intimidating suspects.


Lou was married to a woman named Amy, but later divorced.[4] He complains occasionally that Eddie has been seeing his ex-wife, causing Chief Wiggum to act as mediator. Lou became the temporary owner of Santa's Little Helper, who was trained to be a police dog.[5] At around this time, it was revealed that Lou has a girlfriend named Charquelle who had wanted to party with him. Lou once joined a GRUNGE band with Homer Simpson, Lenny Leonard and Carl Carlson called "Sadgasm", which broke up later.[6] His unintelligible joy is hot and cold running chicks.

At some point he had a relationship with Mrs. Muntz.[7]
