|Max Carter||Service Record||List of Appearances|
Detective Sergeant Max Carter transferred to Sun Hill from CO19. DI Samantha Nixon was expecting a new DS about as much as DC Terry Perkins was. Terry was called into her office and partnered with Max. It was revealed recently that he is half Polish as his mother is Polish, and he speaks the language fluently.
Max transferred from CO19 after being involved in two separate lethal shootings of suspects.One of the shootings was Thomas Jankowski. Although both were justified killings, it was deemed sensible to transfer him out given current media attention to armed response incidents. As the move was accompanied by a promotion to DS, the career-minded Max was happy with the change of scene.
After an undercover operation with DC Mickey Webb in 2009, where the officers were forced to take cocaine to keep their cover, Max became a drugs addict, frequently taking it and having recently been seen forking over large amounts of money to cocaine dealers. His addiction was discovered by Mickey, who informed Sergeant Jo Masters and Terry. Terry then gave Max an ultimatum: turn himself in to DI Neil Manson, or allow Perkins to arrest him for possession, thus ending his career. Max chose neither.
