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

In the first season(s), the officers wear the 8-point hat, and the buttons on their shirt pockets and epaulettes on the shoulders were brass, and the jackets were of the wool Melton type. When Ed Davis became the Chief for LAPD, he did away with these items and went with a round hat, antique silver buttons, and the Eisenhower type of jackets, which is reflected in later seasons.

At the opening of every episode, the radio announcer makes a call to Adam-12 and reports some crime in progress. Adam-12 then speeds to the scene - without the benefit of the address. See more »
You just have to know how to arrest them and still make them like you. We call it technique.

The episode "Elegy for a Pig" was broadcast without the usual opening credits sequence. Instead, the voice of series creator Jack Webb can be heard reading the credits. See more »
I just wanted to say that this is definitely the best cop show ever to grace the airwaves. There are so few shows out there that focus on uniformed cops that it's nice to see something showcase the men (and women) that bust their butts protecting us common folks. I also like the "very little about their personal lives" approach. This is a cop show, so show us cops on duty. So many of today's cop shows care more about who's sleeping with who than the actually job of fighting crime. I want to thank Martin Milner and Kent McCord *not that they'd read this! :)* for making cops seem real in the eyes of so many that see cops as nothing but those horribly corrupt people that pull us over for going 4 over the speed limit. These guys did good!
