The Beat Enforcement Team's Squad Three works tirelessly to maintain order in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside community as these six men and women patrol one of the most controversial neighbourhoods in Canada, taking part in rooming house raids, undercover sting operations, stakeouts, petty thieves and major drug busts. Led in turn by Sergeant Toby Hinton, a 20-year veteran of the beat and newly minted Sergeant Mark Steinkampf, a former jail guard and SWAT team member, Squad Three features: Constable Shane Aitken, a veteran of the first Gulf War and model of poise under pressure; Constable Tim Russell, the unit's youngest and most precocious member; and Constable Kristie Fisher, who struggles to balance the rigor of her daily patrols with family life. Overseeing the squad is inspector John McKay, a well-respected 35-year veteran on the force. Current aired the U.S. premiere of the series on Monday, October 11, 2010 at 8pm.
