Jake Peralta, an immature, but talented N.Y.P.D. detective in Brooklyn's 99th Precinct, comes into immediate conflict with his new commanding officer, the serious and stern Captain Ray Holt.
The pitch for the show to television executives centered around creating police precinct characters reminiscent of those in The Office (2005) or Parks and Recreation (2009). As a result, Creators Michael Schur and Daniel J. Goor set off a bidding war in 2012, and quickly sold the idea to FOX before a script was ever written. Andy Samberg was not part of the proposed series until he suddenly became available after leaving Saturday Night Live (1975) after seven seasons.
Captain Ray Holt:
Whenever his medals are visible, Captain Holt places his Commendation breast bar above his World Trade Center Breast Bar. When the WTC bar is worn, it is worn above all other medals, but below the American Flag bar.
