The main motive of the show is to offer raw and original news which will then maintain transparency with viewers. They also present mind-boggling content like never seen before. “I think you’re going to have people sitting on the edge of their seat,” Larkin said on the show. “There’s going to be some (segments) that you just go, ‘Holy cow,’ with some of the stuff officers face out there. … Then there are (segments) that are just funny deals that are very light-hearted, so it’s a good balance.”
“The goal is to show policing across America,” Sticks said. “You see small agencies, large agencies, you see urban (departments), you see sheriff’s departments and municipalities, highway patrol,” he said. “Here’s an unbiased look, an unfiltered look at law enforcement across the country.”
Amongst the cases recorded, one dealt with the police trying to find a suspect who shot a police officer four times and ran away, stealing a police car. Further, in the series, the police attempt to seize a person in a high-speed chase in the streets of Baltimore. In another case, the police department receives a complaint about a man threatening people on the highway with his knife. They try to calm the situation when a criminal fires shots which could kill his hostage. One police officer accidentally comes in contact with meth.
In another episode, a woman caught by the police tries to get partially nude to run away from DUI. Another police officer gets assaulted by a wasted man. One other fight takes a brutal turn and wrecks disturbance in the waiting room of the hospital. Live shots are fired on the streets of San Francisco between the police and a criminal.
