Description by OLDIES.com:

Billy, Huntz, Leo and other scrappy kids of slum-ridden Beale Street have gone and done it. They've won the Boys Week competition and the right to hold honorary offices as mayor, police chief and the like. With the help of an earnest deputy D.A., the gang aims to use their symbolic powers to free a wrongly jailed pal and bring down an arson racket that's blighting the neighborhood.

Product Description:

Though not a sequel to ANGELS WITH DIRTY FACES, this Warner Bros. programmer does star the Dead End Kids-or, more specifically, Billy Halop, Leo Gorcey, Bobby Jordan, Huntz Hall, Gabriel Dell, and Bernard Punsley. Fresh out of reform school, Gabe Ryan (Frankie Thomas) promises his sister Joy (Ann Sheridan) that he'll go straight, and promptly joins the Beale Street Termites (the Dead Enders), a tough but basically good-hearted street gang. Local mobster William Kroner (Bernard Nedell), seeking out a fall guy for a series of arsons, frames Gabe for a fire in which helpless invalid Sleepy (Punsly) dies. With the help of the other Termites, crusading DA Pat Remson (Ronald Reagan) tries to prove Gabe's innocence, using surprisingly high-handed tactics to get results: arresting Kroner on a misdemeanor, he turns the crook over to the kids, who force a confession out of the terrified crook. In this and several other instances in the film, the gang's rowdy behavior is "purified" because the end justifies the means.
