Chicago P.D. (R) is an American police procedural drama television series. Chicago P.D. follows the Chicago Police Department District 21 cops who patrol the beat and go head-to-head with the city’s street crimes and also the detectives of the Intelligence Unit. Led by Detective Sergeant Hank Voight, Chicago P.D.’s elite Intelligence Unit combats the city’s most heinous offenses – organized crime, drug trafficking, high profile murders and more.
PD is a spin-off of Chicago Fire but you certainly don’t have to have seen Chicago Fire to enjoy it. Chicago PD is full of action right off the bat and although it may not be the most realistic or factual cop show it is entertaining which is what TV is meant to be. The unit is run by Hank Voight, who while having a soft spot for victims, also runs on pure emotion. If Voight can’t get the bad guy legally, he’ll get them another way.
