With the Reagan family of New York City they cannot help but bring their work home. Great grandfather (played by Len Cariou) is the former Police Commissioner of New York, his son Frank (played by Tom Selleck) is the present Police Commissioner of New York, Frank’s daughter Erin (played by Brigette Moynahan) is an Assistant District Attourney, son Danny (played by Donnie Wahlberg) is a First Grade Detective, and son Jamie (played by Will Estes) is an NYPD cop. For several generations the Irish Catholic Reagans have been in public service, i.e. cops in New York City. It is in their blood to seek justice against those who have broken the law.
