Episode Summary

EDIT
False Alarms
AIRED:
A spate of false security alarms is keeping the Heelers on their toes. Tom is becoming increasingly frustrated with the owner of the alarm company, Roland Halliday, and his inefficiencies. If the Heelers are constantly being called to false alarms they will have little time left to pursue real crimes. Meanwhile, Adam is involved in a more pressing matter. His mate "Croc" Perry has been involved in an incident at the local fast food shop. Adam keeps him out of hot water and also makes amends with the shop proprietor, earning his gratitude-Adam's burgers from now on are free. Tom is unimpressed with Adam for exercising poor professional judgement by associating with the likes of Croc. Tom's disaffection worsens when Adam brings in free hamburgers for all the Heelers. In Tom's view accepting "gifts", no matter how small, is skating a little too close to corruption; nothing is free in this world. Nick also knows Croc: he is one of the local boys who Nick has been trying to help. However, despite wanting to believe the contrary, it seems that in Croc's case Nick's words are falling on deaf ears.
Nick's worst fears are realised when Croc is accused of being behind a serious incident at the building site where he works. Could Croc have sabotaged the site, intending to wound either the site foreman or the construction boss? Another alarm sends Adam and Dash rushing out of the station. This time the alarm isn't false, and the Heelers arrest two offenders... and Nick is disappointed to find that they are two of the "success stories" from his youth group.

The case against Croc takes a turn for the worse when the building foreman is found bashed on the site. Nick begins to give up hope that Croc could be innocent-but, determined to stick by the boy, he begins a search for the truth.

Meanwhile, Roland the security consultant makes Adam a job offer. There's a pile of money involved, and Adam can't deny he's tempted. As Adam's relationship with Tom slowly but steadily worsens, Roland's offer seems very tempting...moreless
