Crime Detective (1939 - 40)
A crime and police drama a la Dragnet and Calling all Cars, A Salute to Law features Nick Harris catching those who are guilty of “the folly of committing crime.”Slightly different in tone to the aforementioned series, A Salute to Law stressed an overarching moralistic theme in regards to crime and punishment. The police officer is portrayed as not only one who penalizes but also a provider of moral guidance.
