5.0 out of 5 stars
"Just the facts, ma'am",I'm a big fan of the tv show Dragnet and was interested in checking out this book. I have to say this was a well worth purchase. This book takes you even further into the life of a cop, way beyond the level of the television show. Jack Webb was an amazing person creating one of the most rememberable TV shows of all time (and radio shows) but he also stared in them. This book touches on some of the biggest cases in LA police history.

Along with the insight of the cases you also get a behind the scenes and history of being a police officer. Touching base on the training and mind set it takes to become a good cop. I was not expecting to enjoy this read as much as i did. Considering the time it was wrote it still holds up to what the world is like today.
