Plot Edit

His rookie mistakes eventually get him involved in major criminal cases which he then has to remedy by helping solve the case. During the course of the series James develops as a police officer showing a keen intuition and ability to read people that cements his place as a valuable member of the team. He makes his first arrest after proving that a "respectable" businessman had been running an illegal escort service under the cover of a massage parlour.

Trivia Edit

  • Protect & Serve's first pitch to Vector Networks was dismissed as little more than a cloned police show with network executives doubting the longevity of the series. The test screening of the pilot failed to impress the consideration panel and the show was very nearly rejected. However, after an adaption and change of focus Protect & Serve was approved for a single season in a trial run to gauge audience interest. Initial ratings proved high enough to convince the network and the show was approved for a further two seasons.
  • The episode titles for the series' planned fourth season are to carry more serious names. This is a contrast to the more light-hearted names of the earlier episodes during which Protect & Serve was transitioning from a "buddy cop" show to a more dark and gritty cop show.
