This series for A&E is described as “’The First 48’ behind bars.” Imagine a city populated entirely by the nation’s worst criminals and it’s your job to police them. A prison is that city and “The Squad” is that police force—a specially trained team that responds to and investigates every major crime in the prison – from riots and assaults, to organized crime and drugs, to stabbings and murder. “The Squad” functions as detectives, SWAT and CSI all rolled into one. Each episode follows at least one investigation from beginning to end.
“The Squad turns up the heat!”
