Betsy Brannigan is the new head detective for the Santa Barbara Police Department. She is portrayed by Mira Sorvino.


She's a sweet, adorably reserved and yet certified badass. Her record for taking down ruthless criminals is rivaled only by her skills in sparkly craft making, and her seemingly bubbly demeanor can turn on a dime once she straps on the dual-wielded Colt 1911s. She is a scrapbooking, cat loving, crime-fighting machine. As Shawn observed, she is in many ways a female Lassiter. She never displays his level of intolerance towards the members of Psych, however.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Prior to Season 8 it was at least implied that Betsy would be a major character throughout that season. However, she appeared in only the final three episodes.
