Living in a crowded tenement neighborhood, the Our Gang kids habitually run afoul of the nasty, ill-tempered cop on the beat, "Hard-Boiled" McManus. Upset at McManus' ill-treatment of the youngsters, Inspector Malone replaces him with the more likable Officer Mac. The kids take an immediate shine to Mac, who reciprocates by deputizing the gang as junior officers. The kids take their new responsibilities seriously -- so seriously, in fact, that they manage to capture a genuine crook. As a bonus, the youngsters finally settle accounts with "Hard-Boiled" McManus, in an abrupt but satisfying finale. Originally released on June 28, 1925, Official Officers is one of those ubiquitous Our Gang silent comedies that seemed to pop up on a daily basis in the early days of television.
