Corrected entry: The New York City Police Commissioner wears a four star rank insignia on his collars, badge and lapel pin. The actual insignia worn by the police commissioner is five stars.

Correction: The Commissioner is not a sworn police officer and wears no insignia. The four stars worn by both Frank and Henry Reagan reference their final positions as sworn police officers prior to being appointed Commissioner. As such, they are entitled to wear their final rank of insignia, which in both cases, was Chief of the Department, which is four stars. If one or the other had been appointed Commissioner at the time they were a two star Assistant Chief, then two stars is what they would wear on their dress blues.

Unfinished Business - S4-E13

Corrected entry: Grandpa says his dad was able to get a job as a cop when he got to America in 1910 because he had been in the Royal Air Force in WW I. However, WW I did not start until mid 1914. (00:08:00 - 00:09:00)

ExpatScott

Correction: He's talking about 2 different things. He's said when his father first got here in 1910 no-one liked the Irish. Then his father got a job as a cop because he was a soldier in WWI. There's no mention that his dad was a WWI soldier in 1910.

You're incorrect - go back and listen again.

ExpatScott

Henry never said his dad got a job as a cop in 1910, which is the whole premise of your mistake. The correction is valid.

Baggage - S5-E11

Character mistake: Sergeant Gormley is promoted to Lieutenant in the previous episode. In this episode he is referred to as Sergeant Gormley by Commissioner Reagan and Deputy Commissioner Garrett Moore at least twice.

Mercy - S2-E1

Trivia: In episode 2x1 "Mercy" the last scene was filmed at Brooklyn's Valentino Pier (it's also known as Coffey Street Pier). It had been renamed for a Brooklyn firefighter who heroically died in the line of duty, and the area's full name is Louis Valentino Jr Park and Pier. It's an appreciated green area in the middle of a lot of buildings. Bit of trivia to add, Valentino Pier is featured in a short video with Rosie Perez.

Question: Why why does Danny always yell, "hey!" When he's is a half a block from the perpetrators which gives the perpetrators 1/2 block head start running from Danny. Why doesn't he wait until he's close to him and he wouldn't have to chase him so far?

Answer: It's a common cop show plot device. If the police on the show always acted in the most logical way (i.e. not alerting a suspect to their presence) the show wouldn't have the opportunity for an exciting foot chase.
