The genial, award-winning presenter signs up for his most dangerous assignment - patrolling the crime-ridden streets of Philadelphia with the local law enforcement. Louis joins Philadelphia's police department, patrolling an area that has over 400 homicides a year, drug dealers on every corner and where carrying a gun is part of everyday life. Embedded within Philly's rapid-response team, Louis feels a palpable sense of adrenalin mixed with frustration as police and gangs take each other on night after night, but there's also camaraderie which develops between the officers despite these hugely stressful situations. Louis senses a society trying to contain a lawlessness born out of poverty, mistrust and segregation. Over time, he sees a complex picture evolve: yes, there are good guys, bad guys, guns and violence but there is also tenderness and compassion found in the most unexpected of places. By virtue of what they see day-in, day-out this life inevitably takes its toll on the officers who, paradoxically just like those they are policing, find it very difficult to ever feel safe and to ever completely trust others.
