Has anyone heard anything about police story? Police Story was created by former Los Angeles policeman Joseph Wambaugh. After retiring from the force, he wrote two highly successful novels about police operations, "The New Centurions" and "The Blue Knight". He served as consultant on this show to ensure its authenticity. The stories probed with the psychological problems and effects that police work had on the force. Three episodes of "Police Story" went on to become series of their own: "Police Woman", "The Return of Joe Forrester", and "David Cassidy - Man Undercover". Although Police Story was an anthology, several characters occasionally made return appearances. The most notable examples are Tony Lo Bianco (as Tony Calabrese) and Don Meredith (as Bert Jameson). The realism and exceptional story telling made this the cop show of its tim It was another classic police drama from the 1970s.
