N.Y.P.D.

Show Summary

N.Y.P.D. plainclothes detectives Mike Haines, Johnny Corso and Jeff Ward track murderers, extortionists, drug pushers, bombers, rapists, and other thugs around the Big Apple.

Filmed on actual New York locations which included the Bowery, Wall Street, the Empire State Building, Shubert Alley, Greenwich Village and Times Square, N.Y.P.D. was commended by real life mayor at the time John Lindsay, who allowed the filming of scenes at New York's City Hall. Several episodes were based on actual NYPD cases and the show had full permission from the police department to create them into episodes.

N.Y.P.D. was a police series somewhat like Naked City with gritty action, personal drama and lots of New York City locations.

The show was a landmark in television production, one of the first to use the hand-held of camera work later popularized by the reality show COPS and the drama series Law & Order.
