Season 5 begins with two lives hanging in the balance.
With three years under their belt, the rookies of 15 Division know that rolling with the punches is more than just a life lesson, it's an essential part of the job. Change is the only constant, and if you don't adapt, you're left behind. Now, for these five officers, the time has come to look change right in the eye and make some big, bold choices.
Now entering their third year on the job;these rookies have learned to overcome the sophomore curse -- that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. With a little more experience under their belts;they're starting to realize that the uniform that's shaping their professional identity has also started to shape them as people. They're also starting to learn that sometimes;in order to define who you are;you must first sacrifice who you used to be... even if you're still figuring that out.
Last season, these five rookies hit the streets for the first time with their training officers watching their every move. Now, the training wheels are off; they're more experienced and ready to kick some serious butt. But they are also realizing that when it comes to getting good at this job, there are no shortcuts. And when you're a rookie officer, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. In their first seven months as first responders walking the proverbial beat, they've learned how to be cops.
At the police academy they trained together. Now they're on the job together. Rookie cop Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym, "Heroes") and her fellow new recruits are ready to brave anything, but in the world of big city policing, even the smallest mistake can have life-or-death consequences.
