As the SWAT team helps the LAPD search for the prime suspect in a woman's disappearance, they're joined in the field by a new team member. The personal strain between Chris and Street comes to a head as both await Hicks' decision on who the winner is of a prestigious leadership competition.
Los Angeles S.W.A.T. lieutenant Daniel "Hondo" Harrelson is assigned to lead a highly skilled unit in the community where he grew up. Torn between loyalty to the streets where the cops are sometimes the enemy, and allegiance to his brothers in blue, he strategically straddles these two worlds. Hondo encourages his team to rely on communication and respect over force and aggression, but when a crisis erupts, these unflinching men and women are prepared to put their tactical training to the test.
