Pete Malloy is a seven year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department working out of the Rampart Division. Unfortunately, after his young partner is killed while investigating a warehouse robbery, Malloy is ready to hand in his resignation. However, on what was supposed to be his last night on the force, he is given the task of breaking in a young rookie officer named Jim Reed. After their first night on patrol, Malloy sees potential in the young rookie and decides to not resign after all, and the two begin a seven year partnership in which the two officers handled cases from the serious (murder, robbery, rape, and drug abuse) to the humorous (children getting caught in awkward situations and the odd husband getting kicked out of the house by his wife.

During the period that this show was filmed, the state of California-issued six digit vehicle license plates in the letter and number format (ABC123). The final letter was never I, O, or Q, so that they would not be confused as numbers. The non-police vehicles on the show usually have the letter "I" as the final letter, indicating that it was a movie or television prop plate. 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 »
This show, for the first time, captured the essence of being a street cop. Not just all shootem-up and car chases.
Though obviously dated today.... a whole generation of kids watched this show and wanted to grow up and be Reed or Malloy, including me. The career that provided me with so much satisfaction was really inspired by this show. Despite what some may think, most cops got into the job with the same values and intents that hallmarked the characters on the Adam 12 show.
During my 25+ years in law enforcement, I was able to meet Kent McCord and Martin Milner at several charity events that they regularly supported. In real life, they truly are the good guys they portrayed on television. A picture of myself with them hangs on my office wall, and is one of my most cherished possessions.
