[show]The "one" in "One Adam 12" stood for the area of the division they were stationed in, "Adam" referred to the type of car they drove (a two-man patrol car) and "12" was for the area they patrolled. However, "one" was the code for Central Division (downtown). Since the unit was shown working in Rampart Division, the actual call sign should have been 2-Adam-12.
- During the final season, Malloy had a girlfriend named Judy who was often talked about and appeared in a couple of episodes. She was played by Aneta Corsaut.
