However, while robots are just machines, their operators are also just human – and humans sometimes turn to crime. Since a heavy work unit can be a dangerous weapon, the police of the future must fight fire with fire, using advanced patrol work units, ‘patlabores’. This is the story of the Second Special Vehicle Division, a motley crew of police officers and women who do their best to fight crime and lead a normal life.” (through My Anime Listing)
