Storyline

An undersized man, gifted with much ignorance, but who has a pull with a local politician, secures a position as a policeman. He is given a book of rules and told to enforce the law on his beat, and his efforts in trying to arrest innocent people are extremely ludicrous. A man is trying to get into his own home and the "New Cop" thinking he is a burglar pounces upon him. A man carrying a bundle of laundry is intercepted. A painter going up a ladder is pulled down. The "New Cop" goes on doing these ridiculous things until he meets a bull dog on the sidewalk. This proves his Waterloo. The policeman tells the lady the dog must be muzzled. She becomes very indignant at his intrusion and lets the dog loose. The cop immediately beats it. The dog follows. The cop, with the dog hanging on to him, runs into the police station asking aid from the sergeant. The sergeant takes the star from him and forcibly ejects them all from the place.

The company's comedian succeeds
30 November 2014 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

If the new policemen enforced the rules or the laws literally there would indeed be all kinds of trouble as a result. In this interesting and lively comedy from the Essanay studio that is exactly what a newly appointed officer does, and his amusing blunders are the basis of the picture. The company's comedian succeeds in creating a great deal of sport before the film ends. Technically it is good, and the many amusing experiences of the policeman, including his sudden entrance to the police station in the relentless grip of a ferocious bulldog, are funny and keep the audience laughing. – The Moving Picture World, July 24, 1909
