The concept of radio patrol cars was still brand-spanking new when this fast-moving programmer came off the Universal assembly line. Robert Armstrong and Russell Hopton star as Bill Kennedy and Pat Bourke, a pair of radio cops assigned to protect the payroll of a meat-packing company. Their job is complicated by a crooked officer who is "on the take." After undergoing a grueling training program, our heroes get a chance to prove their worthiness in a climactic set-to with the villains. When the smoke clears at fade-out time, four of the five main characters have been killed, which may have been something of a record back in 1932.
