Description:Just the facts, ma'am. Every week, Sgt. Joe Friday follows the clues, interviews witnesses and spews a lot of crime jargon as he tries to catch one perp or another. For the majority of the show's 1950s run, he was partnered with Officer Smith, but when the show was brought back in 1967, he had Officer Gannon as a partner.
