* RomanAClef: As it says on TheOtherWiki, "Webb was a stickler for accurate details, and Dragnet used many authentic touches, such as the LAPD's actual radio call sign ([=KMA367=]), and the names of many real department officials, such as Ray Pinker and Lee Jones of the crime lab or Chief of Detectives Thad Brown." The then-Chief of Police was always credited at the end of every episode.

The show spawned a number of {{CatchPhrase}}s, such as "The story you are about to hear is true"; "This is the city: Los Angeles, California"; and "My name's Friday. I'm a cop" (eventually, "My name is Friday; I carry a badge"). But the most famous phrase identified with the show -- "Just the facts, Ma'am" -- is actually a BeamMeUpScotty born from a series of ''Dragnet'' parodies created by Creator/StanFreberg.

* {{Badass}}: Joe Friday could be one when the situation called for it. There is an early episode when Joe and Bill track down a couple thugs who shot another cop with a shotgun. Joe kicks down the door, shoves a shotgun in the perp's face and says: "Flinch and you'll be chasing your head down Fifth Street." Later on, he tells the same guy, "I've bumped into jaywalkers tougher than you."

Added DiffLines:

* ConsummateProfessional: Friday, in spades. Even when he's not on duty, he's on duty. Gannon repeatedly tries, in vain, to loosen him up.

* AManIsNotAVirgin: WordOfSaintPaul (Dan Aykroyd, to be precise) is that Friday averts this.

Added DiffLines:

* LimitedWardrobe: For the '60s incarnation of the series, Joe Friday and Bill Gannon wore the same outfit for every episode to save time and money. The one exception was when Jack Webb and Harry Morgan once swapped jackets to see if anyone would notice. No one did.
