Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })A Canadian show made by CTV about a police tactical response team in a nondescript (but clearly Toronto) city. It is co-produced by and also airs on the American network CBS, one of several shows developed as a means of getting around the most recent writers' strike (Canada is outside WGA jurisdiction). The series premiered in 2008, and after five full seasons, the series finale aired in December 2012.Flashpoint is a show about an elite group of officers within a Canadian metropolitan police force, call the Strategic Response Unit or SRU. They're called in when the situation escalates beyond the ability of ordinary officers to handle, particularly hostage situations, armed criminals and bomb threats. Unlike a show like SWAT, the show isn't about the glamor and gunplay of the unit, but rather the personalities and conflict-resolution skills involved in running a group that has to deal with the tense situations they confront. Team leader Sergeant Greg Parker, along with veteran officer Ed Lane, lead their team in an attempt to make sure that everyone gets home alive — officers, victims, and perpetrators.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })A show with a remarkable amount of emotional appeal, character development, and complex webs in each episode.Not to be confused with the 2011 DC Comics comic or the 2013 animated adaptation of said comic.

Abuse Mistake
 Flashpoint / int_3cc3ed1d

Abuse Mistake: An early episode has a cop beating his wife until her sister takes matters into her own and holds up the husband at gunpoint. While investigating the situation, SRU officers quickly discover that the cop's partners and friends on the force knew, or at least strongly suspected, that the cop was beating his wife, but looked the other way out of misguided respect, writing it off as something else.

Abusive Parents
 Flashpoint / int_b11ac9f5
comment
Abusive Parents: This was assumed with Greg Parker's father and how his ability to negotiate was developed. The subject in "He Knows His Brother" was abused by his father and had spent much of his childhood trying to protect his younger brother from the same. A later episode invokes this when a subject is found to be talking to a girl who says her stepfather is sexually abusing her, but it turns out it's all a fabrication and the girl isn't even real.
