Trivia

Although not given specific screen credit, the California Highway Patrol was pleased to give technical advice on the production, even as far as providing all the patrol vehicles used in the series, and uniforms, too (modified to remove all references to California). See more »

Goofs

The Highway Patrol in each state has primary jurisdiction over state-funded highways in that state, and investigate incidents--accidents, hijackings, etc.--that take place on a state highway or began on a state highway. This series has the patrol investigating crimes--murder, robbery, kidnapping, etc.--that would not fall under the patrol's jurisdiction and would normally be investigated by local or federal authorities.

Fond memories of this show during a difficult time
26 June 2002 | by pozySee all my reviews

I remember watching reruns of Highway Patrol with my mother back in 1973 that aired from Philadelphia, PA on a syndicated station at 9:00 every morning. I loved seeing Broderick Crawford (who was from Philadelphia) and his gravely voice and those lovely jet black patrol cars, in glorious black and white. Right after this show was over we switched the channel to the Senate Watergate hearings which were fascinating, to say the least.
