Highway Patrol is an American action-crime drama television series that centers around the rough and gruff boss Dan Mathews, played by Oscar winning actor Broderick Crawford.

The scenes were based on real-life stories from the files of highway patrol headquarters throughout the country. The way they filmed the shoot-outs and car chases added to authenticity of the action, making it one of the most popular syndicated series in television history.
