Lou Grover is a Chicago-born man who originally served as the captain of the Honolulu Police Department's SWAT team before retiring from his position for good in the aftermath of the events in the Season 4 finale episode, O ka Pili'Ohana ka 'Oi.
As the head of HPD's SWAT division, Grover originally had little or no patience for the Hawaii Five-0 Team, believing that they often went too far and that they needed to follow the law.
He regularly clashed with Steve McGarrett, the two men often coming close to butting heads due to the fact that they had completely separate ideas of how to do things.
By the end of Akanahe, Grover and Steve had developed a strong, almost grudging respect for each other although they still remained hostile towards one another.
While the two have formed a strong bond, in Pale'la, Grover told Steve the real reason he left Chicago was the result of a murder-suicide involving a father and his child. That trust grew between them when Steve revealed in the next episode, about Freddie Hart and his death. Still, Lou still likes to make fun at Steve's expense, like when he caught a large fish that McGarrett failed to do on his first try at Spearfishing and insisted that Chin takes a picture and send it to Steve to annoy him.
A 25-year veteran of the force, Grover was Born and bred in Chicago. He graduated from the Chicago Police Academy in 1989, and was promptly recruited by the FBI to go undercover in the Philadelphia Black Mafia. Upon the completion of the assignment, he returned to the Chicago Police Department. He left Chicago around 2012 or 2013, after an incident where he blamed himself for having failed to save a boy who was taken hostage by his father, which ultimately resulted in a murder-suicide. Despite Grover's best efforts, the man ended up killing his son and then himself. 
Grover made his first appearance in Aloha ke kahi I ke kahi where he and his SWAT responded to the hostage crisis inside Iolani Palace, the headquarters of the Hawaii Five-0 Task Force. He later became an enemy of Five-0's leader, Lieutenant Commander Steve McGarret who was attempting to free members of the National Liberation Movement due to the fact that the NLM's leader had taken Steve's girlfriend Lieutenant Catherine Rollins hostage.
Grover filed a complaint against Steve with the governor. However, in the episode Akanahe, Governor Samuel Denning ordered Steve and Grover to work together to bring a summons for Ian Wright and deliver him to the courthouse. However, the situation turned into a kidnapping, and eventually to Grover and Steve having to release Ian when he hacked into the plane, threatening to crash unless he was released. The Governor later commended both the men, saying they made the right decision.
In the episode O kela me keia manawa, Steve found out that his suspect in a case, Jack Anderson, was a friend of Grover's, and let him be a part of the case to track down Jack. Eventually, they found out Jack was actually a wanted man, and Steve and Grover headed to the forest to find him. Though held at gunpoint by Jack, Grover was able to overpower him when Steve created a distraction.
In O ka Pili'Ohana ka 'Oi (episode), hacker Ian Wright returned, targeting Grover's daughter, Samantha. He kidnapped her and made Grover steal $100 million worth of drug money that Five-0 was helping to transport to aid Third World countries. He and Ian's men end up taking the Five-0 team hostage, but they were surprised when the money is missing. Grover killed Ian's men when they tried to kill the Five-0 team, and Grover finally admitted to Steve that Ian Wright had Samantha.
Steve and the team helped Grover track the money to the DOD agent who originally provided the money and a local gang who was helping him transport the money. Before they could hand over the money, though, Grover got a call that Samantha came to HPD headquarters, and said that Ian is dead after Wo Fat shot him and freed Samantha.
Though the money was recovered, Grover was forced into early retirement as a result of the incident. However, Steve offered Grover a place on the Five-0 team.
Despite being reluctant at first, Grover eventually accepted, which resulted in him becoming the newest member of the Hawaii Five-0 Task Force team and overall the fifth and final member of the team.
In the Season 5 premiere episode, A'ohe kahi e pe'e ai, Grover worked his first ever case as a member of the H50 team and was even seen wearing his own version of the team's tac vest.
- Carries a Kimber Warrior as his own personal sidearm with the weapon sometimes being fitted with a Streamlight TLR-2 weapon light.
- The character was named after a Captain Grover (Scott Brady) from the original series.
