The Rookies

Not Yet Rated| 1 hr. 13 min.

Plot Summary
Three rookie police officers report for duty in a sprawling city in Southern California. The new recruits have very different backgrounds: Mike (Sam Melville) used to be in the army, Willie (Michael Ontkean) recently graduated from college and Terry (Georg Stanford Brown) joined the force through a program designed to recruit minorities. Social ills plague the city on a daily basis, but the rookie lawmen are prepared to take them on -- even if they make a few mistakes along the way.
