"Adam-12" was an American TV show which ran from 1968 through 1975 on NBC. It was a television police drama which followed two uniformed officers - Reed and Malloy - as they patrolled the streets of Los Angeles in their patrol unit "1-Adam 12".

In the TV intro the radio always announced: "One-Adam-12, One-Adam-12, see the [man/lady/victim] at [address] about a [crime/incident]," along with the response of "One-Adam-12, Roger," which became a catch phrase ingrained in American culture, and these same radio procedures are still in use at the LAPD today.

Referenced on the Thing-Fish version of You Are What You Is (The Track) and Drop Dead.
