FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • The voice of the police dispatcher belongs to real life LAPD 2nd shift radio dispatcher Shaaron Claridge, who would add her voice talents to all but two of the 174 episodes of the series.

    • Malloy and Reed's first police cruiser in the series is a 1967 Plymouth Belvedere.

    • The name listed in the credits for the writer of this episode, John Randolph, was in actuality, series creator/executive producer Jack Webb. Webb's real name, is John Randolph Webb.

    • The police station seen in this episode and throughout the series was the recently built (1965) station for the Los Angeles Police Department Rampart Division.

      With Jack Webb's insistence on authenticity, he had the interior sets of the station actually constructed to mirror the interior of the "real" station.

    • The Rampart station shown in the series is actually in Division 2 within the LAPD, meaning that Malloy & Reed's radio call sign should technically have been "2-Adam-12".

      Series creator Jack Webb thought "1-Adam-12" sounded better, and as the series wore on, it became a moot point, since the two officers spent time in just about every division in the city, which would not have happened in reality.
