The Streets Of San Francisco was based of characters from the novel Poor, Poor Ophelia, by Carolyn Weston and followed the cases of Lt. Mike Stone and his young partner as they used modern police methods to track down criminals in San Francisco.
Mike was a 23-year veteran of the force and a widower assigned to the Bureau of Inspectors Division of the San Francisco Police Department. His original partner was 28-year-old Steve Keller, a smart, college-educated man who rose from assistant inspector during his stay on the show. In 1976, he left - to enter teaching - and was replaced by the athletic Dan Robbins.
Mike's co-ed daughter was seen occasionally during the early years (played by Darlene Carr). Some of the scenes in the series were filmed in actual San Francisco police buildings, such as the communications center and the morgue!
