David Anthony Mack (born May 30, 1961), is a former L.A.P.D Rampart Division Community Resources Against Street Hoodlums officer. He is one of the central figures in the LAPD Rampart police corruption scandal. Mack was arrested for masterminding the November 6, 1997 robbery of $722,000 from a South Central Los Angeles branch of Bank of America. He was sentenced to 14 years and three months in federal prison. Mack has never revealed the whereabouts of the money.

David Mack grew up in the same Compton neighborhood as Suge Knight.

A remarkable athlete, Mack ran for Locke High School and was champion at the CIF California State Meet at 880 yards, two years in a row. Mack won a scholarship to the University of Oregon, where he ran track and after finishing 6th in the Olympic Trials in 1980, eventually made the United States national team running the 800 metres in the 1987 World Championships in Athletics. Mack is the third fastest American in history at 800 meters with a personal best of 01m43s35. Mack won three Pac-10 conference titles and an NCAA championship in the 800 meters. A leg injury kept him out of the 1984 Summer Olympics and eventually cut short his track career.
