Ladies of the LAPD

A friend of The Eastsider who has been obsessed with old Dragnet shows can’t get enough of watching Epsisode 9, Season 3. The 1968 episode focuses on the training of women recruits at the LAPD’s Police Academy in Elysian Park. Most of the scenes were shot on a stage but there are a few outdoor shots of the academy grounds. Perhaps this episode paved the way for Police Woman and Charlie’s Angels in the decade to come.
