*** Frank and Henry are seen in their white dress shirts as part of their uniforms while Danny is seen in his blue dress shirt. Jamie is wearing a white shirt like Frank and Henry. As a patrol officer, he would actually wear a blue dress shirt like Danny. White shirts are for members of the NYPD with the rank of Lieutenant or higher.[[note]]This is true in the NYPD even on-duty; uniformed personnel with the rank of Sergeant or Officer wear navy-blue shirts and pants. Anyone with the rank of Lieutenant or higher wears a white shirt.[[/note]]

** As far as the NYPD is concerned since 9/11 and the UsefulNotes/WarOnTerror still happened in the show's universe. The actual NYPD Police Commissioner during the first four seasons of the series was two time appointee Commissioner Raymond Kelly. In 2014, during the show's fifth season, Mayor Bill de Blasio appointed former NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton to the position[[note]]Bratton had been commissioner from 1994 to 1996; between his two tenures as NYPD Commissioner, he served as Chief of the UsefulNotes/LosAngeles Police Department[[/note]]. Then in 2016, Bratton retired and his Chief of Department James P. O'Neill became the current Commissioner. Henry Reagan's tenure of office, stated to have been sometime in the 1970s, would most likely have occurred during the tenure of Commissioner Patrick V. Murphy.

Added DiffLines:

* AntiNepotism: Frank Reagan is a ''scrupulously'' honest top cop, and in later seasons Jamie Reagan starts to feel increasingly that his father is making life difficult for him in an attempt to avoid the appearance of nepotism, noting that most of his academy classmates have already made detective while he's still a (increasingly decorated) beat cop.

Added DiffLines:

* AFoolForAClient: When Jamie and Edie are accused of misconduct, they decide to fire their lawyers then just represent themselves (well, in practice Jamie represents both of them) after each puts the blame on the other. This succeeds, and it's partly justified as Jamie is a lawyer himself (he just didn't practice before, having chosen to go into police work instead of that).

**In season 8, Danny's son Sean wins an essay contest and receives a medal from former New York City Mayor David Dinkins.



** A newspaper clipping in "Re-Do" suggests that the mayoral history of New York City was the same through at least Rudy Giuliani. Frank Russo is implied to have taken office then, and held the office until Carter Poole was elected. A telling hint is in the season 3 finale when Danny is interrogating a Los Lordes gangbanger after Mayor Poole gets shot by a Bitterman kid on the gang's orders -- he calls Poole "the second black mayor in New York City," meaning that David Dinkins still became mayor in this timeline.

** In "Blowback," public outrage is directed at the NYPD after a grand jury doesn't indict Officer Eric Russell for the controversial shooting of a knife-wielding teenager that was caught on his body cam, and then someone in Erin's office leaks the body cam footage to the Internet. Shortly thereafter, Officer Mark Hayes is shot and critically wounded in what appears to be a retaliatory incident. This reflects the outrage felt in real life when a grand jury failed to indict Daniel Pantaleo, the officer who used a chokehold on Eric Garner in July 2014. Subsequently, in December 2014, a few weeks after the verdict, NYPD Officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were shot to death in their patrol car on a Brooklyn street, and the gunman then committed suicide in a nearby subway station. It was established to have been a retaliation hit for both Garner's death and the officer-involved shooting of Ferguson, Missouri teenager Michael Brown.

Added DiffLines:

**"Friendship, Love, and Loyalty": Edie is wounded and another officer killed in an ambush by a guy seeking to get initiated into a gang. During a press conference, Mayor Dutton earns the wrath of the NYPD rank and file for suggesting that the shooter may have been afraid of the police, and the cops subsequently turn their backs on her when she shows up at the officer's funeral. This is designed to echo how hundreds of officers turned their backs on Bill de Blasio when he spoke at the funerals for Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Lu[[note]]The president of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, Patrick J. Lynch, had blamed de Blasio and the protesters of the grand jury acquittal in the Eric Garner case for inciting the hostility towards the NYPD that contributed to Ramos and Lu's deaths[[/note]].

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: The very first line of "The Bitter End" is Jamie's partner Vinny announcing "This is it, Reagan! This is the end!" upon arriving at the Bitterman Housing Projects where he grew up (nicknamed "The Bitter End" in-universe). Vinny means it as a pun on the projects' nickname... but the episode [[spoiler: ends with his death at the hands of the local gang]]. Vinny himself notes the irony when this happens, and [[spoiler:in his dying moments, he smiles and repeats to Jamie "I told you, Reagan... this is the end. It's the end, it's okay..."]]
