Metropolitan Police in Forever Knight referred to the Metropolitan Toronto Police Force, which covered the city of Toronto and most of the adjoining communities from 1957 until Nover of 1995.
In November 1995, the agency was renamed the Metropolitan Toronto Police Service. In 1998, the name again changed to the Toronto Police Service'. However, on Forever Knight, the police service continued to be called the Metropolitan Police.

In the pilot, Nick is assigned to the fictional 27th Precinct.
For the second and third season of Forever Knight, Nick served as a detective at the fictional 96th Precinct police station. Based on Tracy's directions to Vachon in Black Buddha Pt. 1, this is usually taken to be located near the intersection of Queen Street West and Spadina Avenue in downtown Toronto.
The Toronto Police museum and discovery center on 40 College Street was often included as a stop during Forever Knight fan pilgrimages to Toronto. The police gift shop sold t-shirts, sweatshirts, office items, toys, keychains, etc. emblazoned with the Metropolitan Toronto Police Force logo. Many of these items were donated to charity auctions, where cast members would sign them and auction them for charity. There were times when police items were signed by only by cast members aligned with the police force. One item was a Toronto Metro Police shirt signed by the 96th precinct cast - Geraint Wyn Davies, John Kapelos and Natsuko Ohama.
