A well shot film of a reconstructed robbery using many classic narrative film techniques such as linear editing to show the progression of the robbery investigation from initial report to capture of the criminals. This is coupled with a narrator who explains the different police procedures and how they combine to solve crimes. The methodical recording of information is highlighted as one of the main elements of the detective work which enables the police to work as a whole unit - from the police on the beat to the CID - to solve all crimes. It is well shot and has good examples of police-wear as the CID still where smart hats, good lighting and cinematography and logical editing work in harmony to get the films message across.
