The ultra-realistic crime dramas of Dragnet were tight, tense, and always on target. Guided by Jack Webb from its radio premiere in 1949 right through to the series' end, the medium's most memorable police procedural never cut corners in its meticulous recreation of crime, investigation, and punishment.
Follow LAPD Sgt. Joe Friday and his partners, Sgts. Ben Romero and Frank Smith, in twenty real-life cases from both the early weeks of the program's run and its later years! (You'll even hear the voice of Harry Morgan, who went on to become Webb's partner on the television version of Dragnet.)
