Mike Kiley is a detective for the local police department. He first met MacGyver while investigating a burglary which Lisa Woodman was involved in. He called upon MacGyver later to help capture escaped psychopath Zito.
Kiley apparently (either through script inconsistencies or just plain hard work on his part) advanced quickly through the ranks of the police department, going from Detective (in “Twenty Questions”) to Lieutenant (in “The Wall”) to Captain (in “Lesson in Evil”).
