I watched the "teaser" a little while back and it was actually pretty well put together and seemed to be enforcement oriented.

Maybe some drama when someone accidentally puts their hand on an open ink pad.

I think they would get better ratings for showing a BSO stamping their finger.

The drama is the heated arguments with management over when you get your lunch and how long you took for your coffee break.

Well, it's not like that shit doesn't actually happen... It's usually just not tv-friendly.

I thought the preview looked pretty good; although it's funny hearing the really Canadian-sounding accents (which I'm told don't really exist down in such an Americanized city such as Windsor)

Here's hoping this show isn't as dull as "To Serve and Protect"

Considering that only 1/2 hour from the border you're in Southern Ontario farming country, you can expect quite a few people with those 'Canadian' accents floating around. Plus, remember that Windsor is one of the main crossings from Ontario to the States, at the end of one of the busiest highways in North America. Even if Windsor natives have less accent than the average Canadian town, you still have a lot of outsiders passing through.

There is no way any Officer could take someone down like that Inland Officer did in the preview and still remain employed after.

Every day, tens of thousands of people arrive at Canada’s border crossings. Most are legitimate travellers, but not all of them. From Canadian citizens with undeclared food to international drug smugglers; from confused visitors to phony immigrants; from impaired drivers to wanted felons.
I didn't know we had these up here :ponder:

I think wanted felons is fair terminology in the circumstances...they are felons and they are wanted (in the states, presumably) and our courageous CBSA officers are keeping them out.
