The series follows the Irish-American Reagan family of police officers with the New York City Police Department (NYPD). Francis "Frank" Reagan (Tom Selleck) is the Police Commissioner. He was a U.S. Marine and a Vietnam veteran before he joined the NYPD. He is a widower, and has also lost one of his four grown children Danny, Erin, Joe, and Jamie.
Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) is a top NYPD detective but is sometimes hard-nosed and does not always go by the book. Danny is also a former Marine who saw combat in the Iraq War. Erin (Bridget Moynahan) is an assistant district attorney in Manhattan who prosecutes many of the criminals Danny arrests. Jamie (Will Estes), Frank's youngest child, is a recent graduate of Harvard Law School and is a rookie officer on the police force after graduating from the police academy. Henry (Len Cariou) is Frank's father and a retired police commissioner, who usually provides advice to his son and grandchildren. The family is close-knit; each episode includes a scene where they all have dinner together with their spouses and children and discuss their current cases.

Frank's middle son, Joe, was an NYPD police detective who died in the line of duty. Joe was involved with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) investigating a group of dirty cops, who were operating within a fraternal organization called the Blue Templar. Joe was murdered by these dirty cops when his covert investigation into their corruption was getting too close.

A running thread through the first season is Jamie picking up Joe's investigation. The FBI tried to recruit Jamie, but he instead conducted his own covert investigation into Joe's death. Joe's murderers tried to kill Jamie by tampering with the brakes on his car, but failed. Jamie then informed his father Frank, his brother Danny, and his grandfather Henry about his suspicions after the attempt on his life.

Along with Erin, they joined together and completed Joe's investigation of the Blue Templar. After gathering sufficient evidence to obtain arrest warrants, Frank leads a team of police officers, including Danny and Jamie, and they arrest all the corrupt cops at a covert meeting while they are dividing up stolen drug money. A detective named Sonny Malevsky (Michael T. Weiss) who was leading the gang of dirty cops admits to killing Joe, but Malevsky commits suicide with his own service pistol after confessing to the murder.

Other characters include Kelly (Andrea Roth), a reporter Frank is dating who is always trying to get the story before Frank wants the public to know about it, Detective Jackie Curatola (Jennifer Esposito), Danny's partner on the police force, and Linda (Amy Carlson), Danny's wife and mother to their two boys.

Jamie was engaged to Sydney (Dylan Moore), a fellow Harvard graduate who broke off their engagement after he became a cop. Erin is divorced and has one teenage daughter, Nicky (Sami Gayle). Jamie's field training officer is Sergeant Anthony Renzulli (Nicholas Turturro), who is tough but fair with Jamie and thinks Jamie has the potential to be a good police officer.
