Directed by Declan Eames
Jo is hauled out of bed to join Ben in attending a burglary in the middle of the night. The victims are a badly shaken elderly couple, the man horrifically pistol whipped. One of the suspects gets away by car. Jo goes after the other, chasing him through backyards and over fences until he falls whilst jumping a fence, hits his head, and is caught.
At the station the suspect complains of headaches, and insists on medical attention. PJ and Ben are sure that he is faking it, but are obliged to have him attended to. The hospital is severely understaffed. Jo is still not going to catch up on her sleep as the suspect needs to be kept overnight, and she draws the short straw as his guard. The only thing which keeps her going is thinking of the overtime entitlements she is clocking up.
PJ and Ben continue the hunt for the second burglary suspect — a hunt which becomes all the more urgent when the injured victim dies. The burglary has become a homicide. When they discover their most likely suspect died three years ago, the investigation grinds to a halt.
Jo's lack of sleep eventually takes its toll, and she inadvertently lets the second suspect escape after she pulls him over for a minor traffic infringement.
Convinced that his partner will try and break his friend out of his guarded bed, the Heelers stake out the hospital. The nurse's industrial dispute has escalated, allowing the Heelers the opportunity to infiltrate the hospital in the guise of volunteers. But when their man grabs a hostage, the stakeout becomes a siege. It takes the united efforts of the Heelers to bring the situation under control. But it is the unlikely teamwork of Tess and Jo which ultimately triumphs.
