Cast & Crew
C. C. Coleman Jr.
Neal Crawford, a sergeant in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, rides into town just in time to witness a fight between Wade Beaumont, one of the owners of a trading post, and Larry Daniels, a miner and the brother of Neal's sweetheart Norma. Soon after, Larry returns to Beaumont's to apologize, and Beaumont is found murdered. Larry is suspected of the crime because of his recent altercation, but because Beaumont was universally hated by the miners and trappers in the territory for charging exorbitant prices at the trading post, Neal has a hard time finding any evidence relating to the murder. Fearing that he may need them if the situation gets bad, Neal has his troops set up camp just outside of town. Neal then decides to trap the real killer by arresting Larry for the crime, thus lulling the murderer into a sense of false security. Neal's plan works when Burke, one of Beaumont's partners, helps Larry break out of jail in order to make him look guilty. Burke also leaves behind a note explaining his plan, which Neal saves as evidence to be used against him after he determines whose handwriting it is. Believing that Larry is now implicated in the murder, Burke and R. A. Kirby, another partner, return to loot their safe, but are foiled by the appearance of Neal who, after overhearing Larry swear to his sister that it was not he who robbed the safe, arrests the men for Beaumont's murder.

Sons Of The Pioneers
A working title for this film was Mounted Police No. 2. In March 1939, Columbia released another film about the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, entitled North of the Yukon, which also starred Charles Starrett. The working title of North of the Yukon was Mounted Police. The similarities between the working titles of the two films suggests that Columbia May originally have intended to make a series of Mountie films. Although only two of the three songs featured in the film have been positively identified, it is known that the Sons of the Pioneers, formed in 1934 by Bob Nolan, Roy Rogers, and Tim Spencer, performed all the songs.
