Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D., Chicago Med, and Chicago Justice

Updated on February 18, 2017

Who Is Taking Care of the City of Chicago?

According to Dick Wolf's Chicago franchise, the city is in great hands with the professionals who work in the following departments:

  • Firefighters and rescue workers from Number 51
  • Patrol officers and detectives in District 21
  • Emergency personnel at Gaffney Medical Center
  • Prosecutors and investigators in Cook County

Not only do we see stories surrounding the professionals as they serve the city of Chicago, we also see them having issues in their private lives.

In all of the shows, we see how workers become family to those who work with them.
