Episode NotesEdit

  • Detective Sanchez's actions in the suspects arrest launched an a inquiry whether he would be qualified to receive the LAPD's Medal for Valor. The Medal for Valor is the LAPD's highest law enforcement medal awarded to officers and it is usually awarded for acts of extraordinary bravery or heroism performed in the line of duty when the officer is in extreme and life-threatening personal risk.

Goofs Edit

  • When Julio was in a foot pursuit with the suspect, Lt. Provenza broadcasted "Officers Need Help". This is incorrect, as the "Officer(s) Needs Help" call should only be used when an officer requires immediate help for a life-threatening incident or an incident that requires immediate help because of serious bodily injury, death, or a serious threat to public safety is imminent.
    • This call later became relevant as the suspect took a hostage, but in the original pursuit he should have just requested a back-up unit as it should be broadcasted when an officer requires additional units immediately, but the situation does not pose a direct threat for serious injury, death or no serious threat to public safety is imminent.
