A great show
7 June 2002 | by (Hopkins, MO) – See all my reviews

"Whenever the laws of many states are broken, a fully organized organization swings into action. They may be called the Troopers,the Rangers,the State Police or the HIGHWAY PATROL." This is how each show started and I remember it almost fifty years later. My dad's sold Fords at the time and he didn't like the Buick's and Oldsmobiles saying. "Police forces don't drive high priced cars." It was a really good show. I'd like to see it again.
