The series is co-sponsored by Gain City, Sheng Siong Supermarkets and Gold Roast Coffee.The sequel from C.L.I.F. 2[1][2] It was the second highest-rated drama series of 2014, only losing out to Three Wishes in October 2014, which was produced by Wawa Pictures and starred Huang Biren.

Plot[edit]

More heart-stopping cases with twists and turns, more exciting scenes of police pitting their wits and might against criminals. And see how law enforcers carry out their tasks with concerted effort and strategy, and how, apart from fighting against criminals and overcoming the onslaught of tricky situations, they deal with their true feelings that surface in the face of love, friendship and kinship.

They epitomise courage, loyalty, integrity and fairness. In carrying out their duties, what are the difficulties, blood and tears, grit and struggles that they have to endure?

The series continues several story lines from the first and second seasons, but it delves further into the relationships of the characters. Yaojia (Qi Yuwu) has been promoted a rank. He and his girlfriend, later fiancée, Xin Yi (Joanne Peh), are back together again. Xin Yi has since been transferred to the Traffic Police Department and struggles with post-traumatic stress disorder from her time overseas with the UN after witnessing an incident there. Zhijie (Rui En) and Lantian (Li Nanxing) are married and the latter has transferred from the Forensics Branch to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID). Guixiang (Elvin Ng) and Xiaoyang (Tracy Lee) return from the first season and it is revealed that they are now with the Traffic Police Department. Fugitive Chen Yanjun (Pierre Png), a former psychiatrist and pedophile, returns with a vengeance to settle scores with Lantian.

The characters names are in both Chinese and dialect (if any) romanization.
