They only answer to their boss, Lt. Krieger, who in turn only answers to the Chief.

This show had a good cast; Dennis Franz and Benjamin Bratt, but it didn't last very long. It was bit stereotypical: the asian cop owned a martial arts dojo, colombians were drug pushers, african-americans were crack addicts, etc. However, it had great story lines, good character development, and great action sequences. The producer of this show, Dick Wolf, later added Benjamin Bratt to another of his long running vehicles, Law & Order. It just wasn't given enough time to develop.
