They get a little help from technology, of course—lots of technology. Then there’s the Chief, proud father and supporter of two of the kid detectives, and Detective Joe Ryan, the dedicated investigator who never gives up. And Heidi Hoover, plucky star reporter of The Daily Pilot… as well as a host of other colorful characters.
