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

According to the LAPD Training officers doing the audio commentary on the Season Two DVDs, the little medallions that Reed and Malloy wear on their uniforms signify their shooting abilities. In the case of Malloy, who has a gold medallion with two bars, he is rated as an distinguished expert shot while Reed, who has a silver medallion with one bar, is a sharpshooter. The commenting officers also explain that police officers are required to be tested on their shooting skills every two years in the LAPD. See more »

The Forefront of other cop shows that were to follow
Even though it was one of the best shows ever in depicting the activities of everyday policeman on the beat in the streets of America, "Adam-12" was the forefront of future cop shows that were to follow it. This show was sort of like the "Cops" of its day as police officers Reed and Malloy go after the bad guys who brake the law and protect its citizens in the gritty streets of Los Angeles. Even though it only ran from 1968-1975 on NBC,this show was a fine police procedural that went straight by the book on how police procedures were done and how the officers handled difficult but strange situations in the line of duty(courtesy of its executive producer and creator Jack Webb). Catch the repeats on TV Land!!!!
