The place, Los Angeles, city of dreams. The characters, Veteran Patrol Officer Pete Malloy and Officer Jim Reed, from the Los Angeles Police Department. The story, watching two police officers do their duty from the boring hum drum to the exciting police dramas that often unfold in real life. The name of the show,
Dragnet  Emergency

Adam-12 was created and produced by Jack Webb, who was already famous as Sgt. Friday on Dragnet. The show centered on the jobs of the police officers Reed and Malloy and not what was done in their personal lives. You only got to know the characters through how they performed their jobs as police officers. The show originally ran from 1968-1975.You can catch Adam-12 in reruns on Tvland.

trivia : One of the writers of the show was Stephen J. Cannell, the same guy who wrote the A-team, a way different show than Adam-12.

The paramedics from "Emergency!" (1972) sometimes crossed paths with the cops at Rampart Hospital. Emergency was another show created by Jack Webb
