Premise[edit]

Broken Badges followed three police officers, J.J "Bullet" Tingreedes, who was addicted to danger, Stanley "Whipusall" Jones, a small man who would explode when people would make comments about his size, and Toby Baker, a kleptomaniac. All were on psychiatric leave from the police department. Together, with former New Orleans cop Beau Jack Bowman and police psychiatrist Priscilla Mather, they formed a crime fighting team.
