He's a middle aged man who has tons of experience and knowledge in his field. Officer Gilchrist has never risen above the ranks outside of the Patrol Division. Is this by choice; or is there another underlying factor to be considered. On one warm summer night; Officer Gilchrist finds himself in a shoot or don't shoot situation. In the world of law enforcement; one split second can change a lifetime.
