Constable Shane Aitken takes a class of local high school students on a tour of the Downtown Eastside. The sights and sounds are at times grim and disturbing, but they drive home the realities of addiction. Back at headquarters, acting Staff Sergeant Toby Hinton, still struggling with the administrative aspects of his new job, jumps at the opportunity to direct a retirement video for the outgoing deputy police chief. Back on the street, The Beat Enforcement Team work to bring down a gang of Central American drug dealers. When Constable Kristie Fisher discovers that they swallow their stash before officers can seize it, she decides to take a more discreet approach.
