Created by R. A. Cinader and Jack Webb, who is known for creating Dragnet, the series captured a typical day in the life of a police officer as realistically as possible. The show ran from September 21, 1968 through May 20, 1975, and helped introduce police procedures and jargon to the general public in the United States of America.PremiseAdam-12 was a realistic style police drama following the lives of two officers of the Los Angeles Police Department, veteran Police Officer III (P-3) Pete Malloy and his rookie partner, probationary Police Officer I (P-1) Jim Reed. Each episode of the series covered a variety of incidents that the officers encountered during a shift, from the tragic to the trivial.In the series' first episode (filmed in September 1967, a year before the pilot was picked up, and directed by Jack Webb), Reed is less than a week removed from graduating from the prestigious Los Angeles Police Academy, and is eager to begin his career. Shortly before, Malloy's patrol partner (and friend) had been killed in an attempt to apprehend an armed robbery suspect; Malloy is deeply saddened, to the extent that he plans to resign the force. On what is to be Malloy's last night on patrol, the captain assigns Malloy to take the young, raw, rookie Reed out for his first night on the job. While Reed shows tremendous potential on his first night on the job, Malloy realizes that his new partner has plenty to learn, and with renewed purpose, the veteran officer decides to stay on the job and guide Reed during his nine-month probationary period.Viewers had been introduced to the character of Jim Reed during the 1967-1968 season of Dragnet (which was called Dragnet 1967 for that particular season) in the episode "Internal Affairs", in which he and Malloy were witness to a case of alleged police brutality against another officer. McCord had appeared in several episodes, alongside other veteran officers who were neither seen nor referred to when Adam-12 was picked up.Reed's rookie term is played out during the first two seasons, after which he is promoted to a full officer. Reed and Malloy remain beat partners. Reed and Malloy comfort a boy whose sister was the victim of a hit and run driver.In later seasons, Malloy and Reed began patrolling other beats of Los Angeles, including the L.A. International Airport, the Los Angeles Harbor, the Foothill District, the West Valley area, Venice, Van Nuys, Hollywood and North Hollywood. With Reed having completed his probationary police officer training period and now holding the rank of Police Officer II (P-2), several episodes featured the officers working with other rookie officers, with guest actors playing these one-time characters; some episodes had Reed serving as the training officer, while Malloy having been promoted to the rank of Senior Lead Officer (who coordinate patrols in many neighborhoods) worked as the watch officer.Malloy and Reed reported to Sgt. William "Mac" McDonald (William Boyett). Several of their fellow officers were recurring characters; the most frequent were Jerry Woods (Fred Stromsoe), Ed Wells (Gary Crosby) and Officer Brinkman (Claude Johnson). Shaaron Claridge, a real-life LAPD dispatcher, was the dispatcher.The personal lives of Malloy and Reed come up on occasion, and are always tied into their duties. Malloy is a bachelor who has at least two girlfriends during the course of the series, the last being Judy (Aneta Corsaut); Reed is married to Jean (Mikki Jamison, 1969–70; in the last season, she was played by Kristin Nelson). They have two children; one of their births (off-camera) is a major part of the plot of Season 2 episode "Baby."Cultural impactThe police vehicles were central characters so that "mobile patrol units [became] associated with the black and white units made famous in such television shows as Adam 12." It was one of the shows that portrayed "the professionalism of the officers and police departments." The theme of Adam 12 also referred to a "military style topic while portraying a sense of contemporary action." "Adam 12 also marked [the] last gasp of the righteous style of cop TV." Their set was not a squad room or an office, but the actors "watched the changes in American culture through the windshield of their squad car.".In 1999, Mattel toys paid homage to Adam 12 by producing a die cast toy police car based on the series a part of their "Star Car" series.
