Lucius Porter (d. 27 Dec 1991) was a detective with the Los Angeles Police Department Hollywood Division.

After the partnership of Jerry Edgar and Harry Bosch was temporarily dissolved in May of 1991, Edgar was reassigned by Harvey Pounds to work with Porter, who Edgar described as "a burned-out lush" who was a member at The Parrot.

He cleared six of fourteen cases during the year of 1991, but made a deal with Narcotics detective Calexico Moore to drag his feet on the death of an unidentified man found on December 18th. Porter quit the force on December 26th, leaving eight open cases that were subsequently reassigned to Harry Bosch.

Porter was later found in the Sunshine Canyon Landfill in the Santa Susana Mountains, having been strangled to death by Osvaldo Arpis Rafaelillo.
