The series gave us a feel for the danger and heroism of police work. Dragnet earned praise for improving the public opinion of police officers.

Then came 1967-1970 Dragnet (a revival of the original expanded to 60 minutes)

After Jack Webb died there were 2 more incarnations:
1989 The New Dragnet
2003 L.A. Dragnet

The LA Police Depart retired Jack Webb's Sargent Joe Friday's badge number 714. Los Angeles city offices lowered their flags to half staff. And the LAPD provided an honor guard at his funeral.

It was an amazing show and I hope you catch it on METV.
