Sam McCloud is a rustic country sheriff from a rural part of the United States. He travels to the big city and joins the police force, using his country ways and laid-back approach to nab the bad guys.
A realistic police drama following the lives of two officers of the LAPD, veteran Pete Malloy and his rookie partner, Jim Reed. Done in a spare, almost "docudrama" style, each episode covered a variety of incidents that the officers encountered during a shift, from the tragic to the trivial. Written by

During the period that Adam-12 was filmed, the state of California issued 6 digit vehicle license plates in the letter/number format (I.E. ABC123). The final letter was never I, O, or Q, so that they would not be confused as a number. The civilian vehicles on ADAM-12 usually have the letter "I" as the final letter indicating that this is a movie/TV prop plate. See more »
Whenever there is an insert of either the radio, the "hot sheet" (list of stolen cars), or when Reed is jotting down information on the pad, the visuals almost never match the continuity of the scene. Example: It can be daytime in the scene, but when the insert of the radio or the hot sheet is shown, they appear, due to the lighting, that the inserts are from nighttime. Also, the same insert of Reed writing on the pad is used whenever he writes info down. As with the errors with the radio not matching the scene, there are times when Reed is wearing the short-sleeve uniform, yet when he's writing info down, we see the cuff of a long-sleeve shirt.

You just have to know how to arrest them and still make them like you. We call it technique.

Just like his other two greats, "Dragnet" and "Emergency!", this was a series that was both entertaining and thoughtful. The stories were action packed, but also looked realistically at police life. A great part of the series was the 60's/70's teenagers' point of view. The teenagers, even though they called the police 'pigs', the cops still helped them when they needed it. A great, great series, I like it even more than "NYPD Blue".
