Returning home from his Army service in the Pacific, Dodo Doubleday resumes his former job as a copy boy at a newspaper. Dodo's girlfriend Penny Blake is determined to have her father, the editor of the newspaper, promote Dodo to a job with a salary where they can afford to marry. However her father, "Windy" Blake detests Dodo and wishes Penny to marry someone of her own social standing. After a fourth of the paper's police reporters is beaten up by gangsters and leaves town, Windy sees the answer to his problems by promoting Dodo to Police Reporter.
Reporting to the Police Station on his first day on the job, Dodo meets his old Sergeant Ames who is now a uniformed police officer on his first day on the force. The pair team up to break up the organized crime ring that leads to double crossing, blackmail, murder and a frantic chase in a house of burlesque.
