Nightwatch follows a reporter and his pursuit to vivify the stories of the brave men of the Culver City (near Los Angeles) Police department as he rides along with them on their patrols. The predecessor to the very popular modern television show "COPS,"Nightwatch allows us to talk a "ride" with our favorite men in blue! For other law enforcement excitements see also Dragnet, Police Headquarters, Mr. District Attorney, This Is Your FBI, Tales of the Texas Rangers, and TI Was a Communist for the FBI.
