Like Broderick Crawford, who appeared on CHiPs (1977) once, William Boyett appeared on the show three times. On season four, episodes five and six, "The Great 5K Star Race and Boulder Wrap Party: Parts 1 & 2", he played a CalTrans Supervisor, and on season five, episode nineteen, "Silent Partner", he played a car thief. In between the two, he was best known for playing Sergeant MacDonald, appearing one hundred twenty-nine times on Adam-12 (1968). See more »
Although well known for his line via radio of "21-50 to headquarters", Broderick Crawford throughout the series failed to properly use the radio microphone. On occasion, he held it backwards and spoke into the metal clip that held it on the dashboard, and he usually did not release the push-to-talk button after speaking (this would have prevented him from hearing headquarters). Other actors such as William Boyett did not make this error when using the microphone. See more »
Whenever the laws of any state are broken, a duly authorized organization swings into action. It may be called the State Police, State Troopers, Militia, the Rangers... or the Highway Patrol. These are the stories of the men whose training, skill and courage have enforced and preserved our state laws.

Fond memories of this show during a difficult time
I remember watching reruns of Highway Patrol with my mother back in 1973 that aired from Philadelphia, PA on a syndicated station at 9:00 every morning. I loved seeing Broderick Crawford (who was from Philadelphia) and his gravely voice and those lovely jet black patrol cars, in glorious black and white. Right after this show was over we switched the channel to the Senate Watergate hearings which were fascinating, to say the least.
