"District 21 of the Chicago Police Department is made up of two distinctly different groups. There are the uniformed cops who patrol the beat and go head to head with the city's street crimes. And there's the Intelligence Unit, the team that combats the city's major offenses - organized crime, drug trafficking, high profile murders and beyond. These are their stories."
From multiple Emmy Award-winning executive producer Dick Wolf and the team behind the hit series "Chicago Fire", "Chicago P.D." is a riveting police drama about the men and women of the Chicago Police Department's elite Intelligence Unit, combatting the city's most heinous offenses - organized crime, drug trafficking, high profile murders and beyond.
Hand-picked as the head of the Unit is Detective Sgt. Hank Voight (Jason Beghe), who is at ground zero against the war on crime in Chicago. He will do ANYTHING to bring criminals to justice. Voight has assembled a team of diverse detectives who share his passion and commitment to keep the city safe. They include: Detective Antonio Dawson (Jon Seda) who is more level-headed and "by the book" than his counterpart; Jay Halstead (Jesse Lee Soffer), a brash young detective who previously saw active military duty in the Middle East; Halstead's partner Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush), a former "bad girl" who turned her life around with Voight's help; Alvin Olinsky (Elias Koteas), an experienced undercover detective and confidante for Voight; and Adam Ruzek (Patrick John Flueger), a quick-witted cadet plucked from the police academy as Olinsky's partner.
The Unit includes a new member in the form of Kevin Atwater (LaRoyce Hawkins), a charismatic patrolman who recently was brought upstairs. Kim Burgess (Marina Squerciati) and Sean Roman (Brian Geraghty) assist with the unit but on a daily basis they work the streets as uniform patrol officers often working with intelligence whenever necessary. Desk Sgt. Trudy Platt (Amy Morton) runs a tight precinct with tough love although she lets her softer more vulnerable side shine through from time to time.
In addition to Wolf, executive producers include Matt Olmstead, Peter Jankowski, Michael Brandt, Derek Haas, Danielle Gelber, Mark Tinker and Arthur Forney.
"Chicago P.D." is produced by Wolf Films in association with Universal Television. (Source: NBC)
While responding to a call of shots fired, Voight, Antonio, Halstead and the team come across a secret battered woman's shelter and discover the owner has been wounded and a resident of the shelter has been kidnapped. The team faces a challenge as the gunman is still at large and the identities of the women are kept confidential. Meanwhile, Burgess and Roman go undercover to track down a man robbing people by catfishing them on a dating app and Lindsay opens up to Halstead about her past.
While out on a bank run for his off-duty security job at the dispensary, Halstead and his co-workers find themselves under attack by a violent robbery crew which quickly becomes a full-scale shootout. Voight and Lindsay question the owner of the dispensary who mentions her business has received threats from local gangs upset she's cutting into their revenue. Meanwhile Roman, Burgess, Antonio, Halstead, Ruzek and Atwater follow-up on a lead and track down a potential suspect.
