The series followed the members of an elite unit of the Toronto Police Service, the Strategic Response Unit (SRU), which intervened in situations of extreme emergency. The members of the SRU unit were experts in negotiation and management of crises, and they were ready to take risks to protect the life of innocent people and put an end to dangerous situations.
