The City of St. John's Police Headquarters in the show is actually the Bruneau Centre for Research located on Memorial University of Newfoundland's campus. Staff and students would see police related signage pop-up ahead of filming on their way to work/class, and the university would email notices to "not be alarmed by the appearance of police presence".

Hudson states in the first episode that K-9 officers are euthanized if their handler dies and they are not claimed by someone. This is not true. It costs thousands of dollars and years of work to properly train a police dog. Healthy dogs are re-paired with new handlers, and when they are retired, if their current handler does not choose to keep them, they are put up for adoption, the same as any other dog. See more
