Regina "Gina" Linetti is the 99th Precinct's sardonic civilian administrator. At the end of season two, she leaves The 99th Precinct to join Ray Holt, working at the NYPD's public relations office. She returns to her old post at the end of The Oolong Slayer.
Gina is a member of a dance troupe called "Dance-y Reagan" and was formerly part of a troupe called "Floor-Gasm".
Gina was a childhood friend of Jake Peralta's and spent a lot of time over at his Nana's. When she was a teenager, she attended the Junior Police Program for at-risk youth which she claims does not work. Gina is Italian-American.
Before joining the 99th Precinct she was an assistant manager at a sunglass kiosk in a mall.
Jake Peralta was the reason that she got her job, although she saved money and later proved herself to be financially responsible. She has been engaged 8 times, but has never been married.
In Halloween II, it is revealed that Gina has decided to go back to school.
Gina has long auburn hair. She is usually seen in a printed blouse with a cardigan. Most days, she is seen on her iPhone, not really doing any kind of work.
She has displayed a penchant for kleptomania and extreme narcissism, but is generally regarded as harmless by the rest of the staff. She does very little other than play on her phone, taunt Charles Boyle, and constantly compliment, praise and exalt herself.
Jake and Gina grew up together. When Jake was getting evicted, she bought his Nana's apartment. Jake was responsible for getting her hired with the department.
Rosa is rather protective of Gina, but quietly so. It is seen that Gina's antics seem to have the best effect on Rosa, as more often than not Rosa smiles or laughs at the things Gina does. It is therefore ironic that Rosa is most frequently tasked with taking care of Gina when said antics get out of control or prove to be an obstruction.
Gina always used every excuse to make fun of Charles, but after his break up with fiancée Vivian, she told him the fastest way to get over someone is rebound sex. At the end of the Season 1 finale, the two were shown in bed together. In the beginning of Season 2, they are still hooking up. But at the end of season three they become step brother and sister because their parents got married.
Gina is promoted to his assistant. She has oddly helped in some situations and also got him addicted to a game called Kwazy Cupcakes.
