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 final episode, Reed receives the Medal of Valor for saving Malloy's life. 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 »

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 »
A great TV Police Show of the 1960's, and in fact only one of the very few that I would ever watch. So good in fact, that I joined the Police in 1970, and was a Police Officer until 2003. Yes, this show was very down to earth with its stories, and a great example of the every day to day duties performed by uniform Police (its the same "Job" all over the world!).
