Adam-12 (1968)

A realistic police drama following the lives of two officers of the LAPD, veteran Pete Malloy and his rookie partner, Jim Reed. Done in a spare, almost "docudrama" style, each episode covered a variety of incidents that the officers encountered during a shift.

    While the series used 1 ADAM 12, LAPD units used odd numbers for beats, so they would have been 1 Adam 11 or Adam 13. The only even numbers were used by the supervisors (I.E. Sgt's) and they would have been the numbers 10, 20, etc. so 1 Adam 12 would never have been an actual assigned number.

    Malloy's badge number was 744 and Reed's was 2430. Badges are reissued once an officer retires, so the permanent numbers are "Serial Numbers". Reed's serial number was 13985, which would coincide with an Academy class from 1968, the year Reed was supposed to have joined the LAPD.

    In the first season(s), the officers wear the 8-point hat, and the buttons on their shirt pockets and epaulettes on the shoulders were brass, and the jackets were of the wool Melton type. When Ed Davis became the Chief for LAPD, he did away with these items and went with a round hat, antique silver buttons, and the Eisenhower type of jackets, which is reflected in later seasons.
