Director Enzo Casterllari stated that producer Cecchi Gori did not want him to shoot the opening sequence the way he wanted due to budget constraints. Castellari made an agreement with the suntmen and Rocco Lerro, and shot all the scenes a little bit every day without pay without a shooting permit.
Street Law was released on September 17, 1974 in Italy where it was distributed by Cineriz. The film grossed 1,723,405,000 Italian lira. The commercial success of Street Law paved the way for poliziotteschi's most critically panned subgenre, the vigilante film.
