TV Show Plot For Adam 12

While Adam 12’s plot centered around the Los Angeles Police Department’s Central Division, the writers of the show based their material on real cases from the LAPD’s police files. Thus, the show was not focused on any one particular area of the city.

Pete Malloy (Martin Milner) is about to retire from the police force after the death of his partner, when he is paired with rookie cop Jim Reed (Kent McCord.) Malloy eventually decides to stay on and, in the course of Adam 12’s 174 episodes, manages to mold Reed into one of Los Angeles’s finest.

In the year 1989, Adam 12 was revamped under the title The New Adam 12. This version of the show did not prove to be successful, however, and ran for only one season.
