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 "one" in "One Adam 12" stood for the area of the division they were stationed in, "Adam" referred to the type of car they drove (a two-man patrol car) and "12" was for the area they patrolled. However, "one" was the code for Central Division (downtown). Since the unit was shown working in Rampart Division, the actual call sign should have been 2-Adam-12. 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.

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!
