Publisher's Summary

Dragnet was radio's most successful police procedural series, and by far its most influential, shaping an entire generation's view of law enforcement, and bringing police work to life in carefully-documented detail. Never sensationalistic, but always a gripping listening experience, Jack Webb's signature creation remains the standard against which crime dramas are judged.  

Webb, who produced and directed the series, stars as Sergeant Joe Friday in gritty dramas of unprecedented realism. These ripped-from-official-files stories of every day cops, as originally broadcast in the summer and fall of 1951, co-star Barton Yarborough as Sergeant Ben Romero.
