The misbehaving public performs for the camera in a half-hour miscellany of misdeeds. In a behind-the-scenes look at the hour-by-hour operation of a large metropolitan police force, this film presents a fair sampling of what keeps Toronto's police officers busy twenty-four hours a day.

    Enlightening, insightful documentary about a day-in-the-life of the Metropolitan Toronto Police Department, way back when the city had only 1 million citizens, and Forensics didn't even use gloves!! Great time capsule.
