This is the second part of a gripping storyline where Steve is framed for the murder of an internal affairs investigator by four corrupt cops.
Steve Sloan (Barry Van Dyke) suspects four of his fellow cops are corrupt big time, and he reports them to Internal Affairs investigator Lloyd Schroeder. Unfortunately, Schroeder wants in on the ill-gained profits of the Gang of Four, and he suffers the consequences of being double crossed by them.
Dr Sloan is determined to clear his son, and one telling scene is where during a training procedure with one of the Gang of Four, Detective Jim Michaels, Dr Sloan accidentally shoots him (with paint pellets). It turns out Jim is black. Oh dear, even black cops aren't safe from the white man.
You can imagine the Gang of Four are desperate not to get caught, given they would have seen a few years before the Tom Selleck movie An Innocent Man, where corrupt cops are sentenced to prison.
I think this episode was still filmed and set in Colorado, as I know they soon moved to LA.
