NOTES

powered by AFI

The opening narration for this film states: "This story attempts to show how Vice Squads, designed to make our communities more moral, have in many American cities done the very opposite. The methods of the old-fashioned Vice Squad must go! The great majority of policemen resent its ruthless treatment of women and girls, trapped by paid "stool pigeons" in situations which appear to justify their arrest." Reviews state that details of this film mimicked a recent vice squad investigation conducted in New York City.
