They sure don't follow those procedures anymore
12 December 2017 | by lchaim7See all my reviews

Most or all of these episodes are interesting for several reasons. But for me, Adam 12 provides a window into various historical aspects about the L.A. area and police procedures that can get a LEO killed or injured. I don't know if the arrest and pursuit procedures were realistic but compared to today, no way. It seems too easy for the officers to simply chase and arrest people without any real precaution or awareness of danger. Today they would have their guns drawn at almost all times.
