The Commissioner Gardone is called to replace the Commissioner Jovine who, unable to fight the delinquency in his town, prefers to leave. Gardone is determined to use any methods, lawful or not. Firstly, in order to capture a group of bandits he goes as far as to endanger the lives of several hostages held up in a bank; then he completely spoils the carefully planned kidnapping of the son of a rich industrialist, thanks to illegal telephone bugging. To warn him, the criminals kidnap his son Maurizio. After the first understandable indecisions, Gardone pushed also by Maurizio to whom he spoke on the telephone refuses to change his tactics used up to now. He discovers, thanks to the information of a member of the gang, that the leader of the organization is none other than the ex­Commissioner Jovine. Gardone then has him arrested and organizes a raid on the house where his son is held prisoner. The kidnappers however manage to escape, but after a long chase that will cause the death of a child and serious wounds to Maurizio, thrown out of a car, the police will kill them all.
