The 99th precinct of the New York Police Department on Brooklyn receives a new Commanding Officer, Raymond Holt, who, in contrast with the former Captain, takes police work very seriously, much to the dismay of talented but carefree Detective Jacob Peralta, and the satisfaction of the by-the-book Detective Amy Santiago. Holt gets to know his detectives through Sergeant Terry Jeffords, their very dedicated but rather emotionally unstable leader. Meanwhile, Detective Charles Boyle, a very committed but not physically gifted officer, wants to ask laconic and tough Detective Rosa Diaz out on a date, but since he cannot do it himself, he asks Gina Linetti, the sarcastic civilian administrator, for help, and Jake already gets on the new CO nerves by refusing to take his orders seriously, like wearing a neck tie.
