Description by OLDIES.com:
In the tradition of "Dragnet," this riveting crime series presents true tales of robbery and murder based on actual case files of the Los Angeles County Sheriff. Richard Travis stars as Sheriff Barrett, leading us through each tension-filled half-hour as he and his officers scour the City of Angels for any and all lawbreakers. Joining him at the end of each episode is real-life L.A. sheriff Eugene W. Bissculuce, whose department worked closely with the producers to ensure the accuracy of the show's portrayal of police procedures.
The Rookie Sheriff: Peter Van Eyck guest stars as a brilliant but overzealous rookie whose pursuit of "mental and physical superiority" drives a wedge between him and other students at the police academy.
The Man with Many Faces: A check forger fleeces big companies in the Los Angeles area, but there are no set patterns to his methods, leaving police with few leads.
The Sniper Movie: As a gunman randomly murders women across Los Angeles, a realtor's wife suspects that her husband may actually be the killer.
The Benson Case: Murder suspect Bonnie Benson, awaiting trial in the L.A. County Women's Prison, is determined to snuff out an undercover policewoman posing as a prisoner.
Straight from the files of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's department, this 1950s crime series follows Sheriff Barrett (Richard Travis) as he investigates everything from grand larceny to cold-blooded murder. This collection presents four episodes of riveting true-crime drama: "The Rookie Sheriff," "The Man with Many Faces," "The Sniper Movie," and "The Benson Case."
