This police action drama was set in a large city in the West. The principals were 20-year veteran Sam Stone, his young partner Jim Briggs, and Brigg's father, Desk Sgt. Dan Briggs, a kind of paunchy housemother to the younger cops in the station house. Capt. Nye was their commanding officer during the first and last seasons, temporarily replaced by Capt. Franks in the 1967-68. The series was filmed on location in Los Angeles area.
