Another true case, straight from official police files. Only the names have been change to protect the innocent. Joe Friday is on detail to work in the police office, handling what ever emergencies that come through the door. Besides Friday’s amazing customer service skills, he gets to deal with administration procedures, routing crime details to available officers and departments. Thefts, murder, missing persons, and the like.
All the life blood of the police department runs through Room 21, and at least for tonight, Joe Friday. A break in the daily drudgery of police work comes when there’s a reported murder. Friday interviews witnesses, and filters through the stack of clues and lies. The parade of characters, from serious to comical, keep the cops jumping.
