Jack Webb and the Jack Webb Awards
No four notes in music are more iconic than the “Dum-de-dum-dum” from Dragnet’s theme song. And no phrase could beat that of Jack Webb’s staccato voice portraying Sergeant Joe Friday: “My name is Friday — I’m a cop.” Over the years, Jack Webb strove for total accuracy, both in his portrayal of a police officer and in the stories he produced. The impact on law enforcement was tremendous.
The Los Angeles Police Museum is proud to present the Jack Webb Awards in his honor and to salute his memory.
