I kind of like this show. I thought it was far better than Standoff which had similar themes. I also liked the fact they spent half a show doing the follow up after an officer involved shooting because you don't see that done in such detail usually.
What is pissing me off about this show is that the producers seem so scared that US viewers will notice that it's shot in Canada that they are trying everything to avoid giving away any signs. The buildings are shot from off the ground, license plates are blurred, major landmarks are tiny and quickly off screen, no mention of the city on uniforms, flags or in words, neutral accents ...
The only evidence they can't hide is the maple leaf uniform insignias, but you would have to be paying attention and have a big HD screen to catch those.
