Flashpoint is an emotional journey into the tough, risk-filled lives of a group of cops in the Strategic Response Unit (SRU). They’re unique cops that can do what ordinary police officers can’t: rescue hostages, bust gangs, defuse bombs, climb the sides of buildings and talk down suicidal teens. Members of a highly-skilled tactical team, they’re also trained in negotiating, profiling and getting inside the suspect’s head at the very emotional breaking point (the “flashpoint”) that triggered the crisis. They’ll do whatever it takes to diffuse the situation to try to save lives. Set in Toronto, and shot there, Flashpoint was the first Canadian series since Due South to air in network primetime in both Canada (CTV) and the U.S. (CBS). Its last season aired in 2012.
