Dragnet

Dragnet, the classic police drama, stars Jack Webb as Sgt. Joe Friday. Dragnet takes you step by step through a police investigation, dramatized for effect. It shows police officers as real people, not just the one-dimensional characters that so often populate OTR crime dramas.

Notice: Many of these episodes contain the original commercials for Fatima cigarettes. They have been left in for entertainment value only. Please don't smoke!

You can find more episodes in the Ear Benders section.
