Callaway, at a crossroads with his long term girlfriend, faces additional family pressure to quit the force and join the family business in Newport Beach. The entire unit is on the trail of a vicious car-jacker working the beach area.
While the Bike Patrol is being used as a CRASH Unit to fight gang activity in the beach area, Cory McNamara is forced to shoot a gangbanger fleeing a crime scene. When no weapon is found, the incident becomes potential ""bad shoot"". The situation is made worse by the fact that Cory is third generation in blue and the ""first shoot"" has to be a clean one (a police tradition and superstition). Cory must deal with a disapproving cop father, the gangbanger on the loose, the threat of a sleazy lawsuit against the department, and her potential for lack of nerve on the street. A brash trouble-making young star comes to the beach to shoot a portion of his feature film, and members of the bike patrol are assigned as liaisons. Once a sexy idol in the eyes of Chris Kelly, he soon proves his arrogant, wild-man reputation is well earned. Victor, no fan of the actor, is charmed into playing a small part in the film. A band of rollerskating pickpockets are working the boardwalk, their spot, dip, h
While teaching del Torro to surf, T.C. encounters a band of highly territorial Surf Nazis bullying a Hispanic surfer on the beach. Operating out of a beach bar decorated with Nazi symbols, the leader of this gang went to law school and is well vested in his rights. T.C. and Victor, who is Hispanic but doesn't look it, are both goaded into a confrontation that results in T.C.'s suspension. Cory and Victor chase and arrest an irrepressible sixteen-year-old black ""tagger"" who hits everything from tunnels to buildings to Victor's bicycle seat and the side of the firehouse. After seeing his home and works of art, Cory realizes the tagger is truly talented and acting out using his painting skills. Unfortunately, after an encounter in the firehouse cell with the leader of the Surf Nazis, the tagger becomes a target for their terror and must ultimately be saved by our officers. ""The Cove"" has long been an illegal nude beach, but election day is fast approaching and a ballot measure may mak
After discovering an old best friend, a guy T.C. felt he let down, has died in a suspicious skydiving accident, T.C. insinuates himself into a group of extreme-sport thrill seekers that he believes are behind the ""accident"". With T.C. seeking redemption in the world of adrenaline junkies caught up in underwater challenges and mountain bike racing, Lt. Palermo and Chris Kelly are worried just how far T.C. will risk himself to find the killer. Ultimately T.C. comes to grips with the reality of his own limitations, and brings down the extreme group who are using their mountain bikes to pull off the daredevil robbery of an armored car. A purse snatching dog is nailing patron after patron on the Venice Boardwalk. The pooch runs up behind women, grabs their purse in his teeth and then flees through alleys and under fences.
When a dead woman's body turns up on the beach with an origami angel on her chest, Palermo realizes that the serial killer who left him with a permanent leg injury has returned to the area. Obsessed with finding the killer, he stays his vacation and bends all the rules to bring down the Angel of Death before he kills again. There's been a string of cat burglaries at an upscale hotel that caters to couples having affairs. Unable to catch the thief by conventional means, T.C. and Chris have to pose as lovers the to catch the elusive bandit.

After being ordered to shoot T.C., the young gunman has cold feet and flees. T.C., realizing his own mortality, becomes obsessed with the case as he spirals into self destructive behavior. In the final act, our officers get into a high tension situation as two of the heavies try to take a young girl hostage in yet another market. When T.C. finds himself again confronted by the same young gunman, he has to talk him out of killing a wounded Tony Palermo. Victor is shocked to discover that the skinny, awkward girl he took to the high school prom and later dumped, has just appeared as the centerfold in a Playboy-like magazine. He embarks on a personal (and funny) quest to relocate and connect with his old high school sweetheart. After a series of failed relationships, Chris finally meets a man who can deal with the fact that s
A scorching heatwave has descended on the beach and is making everyone crazy. Palermo has three problems at once: K.C.B.H. radio is transmitting their summer afternoon show from a storefront on the crowded boardwalk we patrol. After striking up a friendship with the sexy sex-talk lady D.J., T.C. learns she's being stalked by a crazed listener bent on eliminating men he believes are part of the D.J.'s life. At odds with the city detective assigned to the case, T.C. ultimately uses himself as a lure (posing as a romantic interest in the D.J.'s life) to capture the bad guy. Cory and Victor are on the trail of the ""topless bandit"". Two young women enter banks and jewelry stores at the beach, begin dancing and stripping, while an accomplice commits armed robbery. No witnesses to the crime can give any description of the robber.

After insisting that only T.C. could be assigned to protect her, the couple have to flee another attempt on her life. When too many loose ends don't add up, Chris becomes suspicious about the young woman's intentions and starts to follow her much to T.C.'s anger. She finally reveals to T.C. that the man trying to kill her is a boyfriend from back east, a criminal who recently committed a large diamond robbery with information he forced her to reveal from her old place of employment. In the end T.C. is shocked to discover that she is not the victim, but rather the co-conspirator in the crime and was using T.C. all along to kill her ex-partner and lover.

Rat Man and Rat Boy, a father-son exterminating team, are brought in to catch the creature.
The Bike Patrol has a new transferee, Scott Kramer, a ten year veteran and department bad apple who seems to take extreme risks without regard to personal safety. He's teamed with Chris to try and stop a pair of bikers on Harleys who are robbing merchants in the Venice area and fleeing on their choppers. After several near death experiences, we come to realize that the reason this cop is so reckless is that he knows he has less than six months to live and wants to spend that time taking down every last criminal he can. To complicate matters, Chris Kelly develops a crush on this wild loner. Elvis the bike mechanic gets everyone involved in his can't miss lotto scheme, pooling more and more money to the point where greed overcomes friendships among our regulars.

In the end, it's the Bike Patrol -- and not the FBI -- that discovers the bomber's true plan is to use the blackout to pull a multi-million dollar bank heist. While this is happening, T.C.'s girlfriend Sandy returns to live with him, with the condition that he not tell her anything about his job so she won't worry. But the agreement ends up making things harder on both of them.

When her older brother, Peter, suddenly begins buying luxuries for his family, Cory discovers that he's financing his purchases with money stolen from drug dealers.
