Republic's look at the 1950 Los Angeles Women from Police headquarters

Joyce Harper (Virginia Huston) is an ex-Army nurse who enters police work with the L.A. Police Department, when her friend Ruby (Barbra Fuller) gets involved with a petty crook, Max Taylor (Norman Budd), is taken in with his smooth line, refuses to listen to Joyce's warnings, and eventually marries Smooth Max. Whether she was pregnant when she marries Max is not known, but she is when she next shows up a couple of months and reels later on her way to the Hospital delivery room.

It takes Joyce about a reel to get through the detailed trained required to become an L.A. policewoman---you PC freaks stick it, this is 1950---and she and her newly-assigned detective partner, Harvey Gates (Robert Rockwell)go out and cleanup up a skid-row Bar-girl scheme, and this gets rid of Joe Calla (Otto Waldis) and Bartender Sam (Jack Krushen) in about a reel.

And she and Gates are told to get the goods on a narcotics gang ran by Richard Cott (Grandon Rhodes), and this is when Ruby and Max Taylor reappear.
