Detective Teddy Wells is a male detective from the 82nd Precinct. He first appears in Tactical Village, and is revealed to be an old acquaintance of Amy Santiago. He can also be seen in Unsolvable and The Road Trip.


Amy and Teddy met at a voluntary training course to brush up on police codes. The two bonded while studying, and went out on a couple of dates. The relationship ended when Teddy was stationed in Queens.

He and his team scored a perfect run in the Tactical Village weapons training course. They set the record of 18 mins and 41 seconds. Their record was then, beaten by the Nine-Nine squad, who scored 18 mins and 28 seconds. (Nine-Nine!)

Teddy and Amy soon rekindle their relationship, dating exclusively for over six months.

In The Road Trip, Jake Peralta invites him on a trip upstate, wanting to surprise Santiago. He ends up making things awkward as Santiago had planned to break up with Teddy, mainly because of his obsession with pilsners, a type of pale lager. Teddy suspects the breakup also might have been related to Jake confessing his feelings for Amy on several occasions.

In The Audit, he is chosen to oversee whether or not the 99 is worth keeping around when Brooklyn plans on shutting down a precinct. Fears over him having hard feelings on his break up with Amy cause her and Jake to suck up to him and his love for Pilsners. At a "Jazz Brunch" he organises between himself, the pair and his own girlfriend, Amy and Jake fake a fight to avoid rubbing their relationship in his face but this leads to him revealing to Amy that he still has feelings for her (in front of his girlfriend) and proposing to her (in front of his girlfriend). She rejects him and the next day he embraces his role as "The most boring man in America" and hands the role of Auditor to Veronica Hopkins. But not before trying another attempt at proposing to Amy.
