A remake of the popular and long-running 70's poilce drama of the same name. Officers Doyle and Grant patrolled the streets of Los Angeles in squad car Adam-12, trying to keep the city safe... See full summary »
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

The dispatcher voice on the program was played by Shaaron Claridge. Claridge was a real L.A. dispatcher. Producer Jack Webb thought using a real dispatcher for the voiceovers would lend authenticity to the program. Webb did the same thing for his later series, "Emergency!", casting a real-life emergency dispatcher to voice the role. See more »
In all episodes throughout the series, during any interior scenes showing the captain's office, which is depicted as having a door and windows facing the hallway and a wall with a window looking into the adjoining office, there is never any glass in either the doors or windows. See more »
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".
