"...'Flashpoint' follows an elite tactical unit, called the 'Strategic Response Unit' (SRU), styled after the Toronto Police Emergency Task Force (ETF). The SRU are tasked to resolve extreme situations that regular officers are not trained to handle including hostage-taking, bomb threats and heavily armed criminals. Equipped with high-tech tools and a cache of weapons and explosives, members use negotiation tactics and intuition to try to avoid the use of force..."
