“Welcome to the Downtown Eastside”

Led by 20-year veteran Sgt. Toby Hinton and adrenaline junkie Sgt. Mark Steinkampf, The Beatfollows the intersecting stories of six police officers who live for the street. In this Season 2 premiere episode, the officers take time out from their busy street patrol to give a group of teenage hockey players a tour of “skid row” where they encounter the harsh realities of addiction, homelessness and crime. At a nearby rooming house, other B.E.T. members are hot on the heels of a drug bust, but hidden cameras, fortified doors, and escape routes help the dealers stay a step ahead.
