The three detectives fight every kind of criminal all over New York City. The show featured many actual New York City locations, as well as episodes based on real New York City police cases.Written by

ABC announced in March 1968 the show's cancellation. A month and a half later, because of improved Nielsen ratings, ABC announced that the show would return for the 1968-1969 season. (Articles from New York Times, March 11, 1968, and April 30, 1968.) See more »
I cant believe most people cant remember this great show
I sat through many episodes of NYPD 1967 when I was a kid which kept me riveted and in suspense. I just thought it was so exciting to look at and I can clearly remember talking about it the next day after it aired with my 3rd Grade schoolmates who were watching also. As i remember, the show was basically about 3 NYPD detectives cracking interesting cases in NYPD. Each show was 30 minutes which made them brisk and right to the point !
Some of the episodes i remember clearly remember which were great was one with Jon Voight as a mad bomber. Then there was one when Detective Corso posed as a bum to entrap some muggers. There was another one with the guy who was on Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman (I think the actor's name was Graham Jarvis) who was troubled (i forget why) but decides to take his aggression out on a rooftop with a high powered rifle. This was suspenseful stuff.
The opening of the show with the theme song and camera close up of the the flashing red siren and the announcer saying "NYPD......in color) is classic 60's nostalgia.
