The show comes from Emmy-winning producer Dick Wolf who is also behind other popular police dramas such as the “Law & Order” series of shows. The show premiered in 2014 and is going into it’s 6th year.
District 21 of the Chicago Police Department is composed of the uniformed cops, who deal with street crimes, and the Intelligence Unit, which deals with major crimes like drug trafficking and high-profile murders.
