HIGHWAY PATROL LOCATIONS
starring Broderick Crawford

Last Updated on 6-13-15

I have finished working on a location book on the 1950's ZIV television show "Highway Patrol". It is now available for sale at CP Entertainment Books.

Any locations found and not included in the book will be found on this web site. Some of the most recent finds were through the generous help of Gary Goltz.

The series lasted for 4 seasons of 39 episodes each for a total of 156 episodes. Each episode generally used multiple locations.

Each episode of the series was filmed in a maximum of 2 to 3 days--1 day in the studio and 1 to 2 days on location. Locations utilized in an episode tended to be near each other, but not always.

Each image below can be clicked on for a larger version.

LOCATIONS CORRECTIONS

On page 143 of the book, Exposition Park section, the information on the Wallis Annenberg building back entrance is incorrect. The back entrance faces east. The driveway used to enter the lower portion of the building was actually on the north side.

As locations are identified, they are removed from this ever changing web site.

SEASON 1

Episode 3 Reckless Driving


Most of the episode shot in the Playa Del Rey and El Segundo sections of Los Angeles. Where was this building located?


Episode 8 Radioactive


This episode filmed in Culver City and Playa del Rey.


Episode 16 Mountain Copter


The building entrance in the left image, identified as 180, was first used in this episode. It became stock footage in other episodes. Where was the building located (at least we know the street number--180!)?


SEASON 2

Episode 54 Migrant Workers

  
Most of the episode was shot around Mulholland Drive.


Episode 66 Officer's Wife



Some of the episode was shot on Canyon Drive in Los Angeles.


Episode 71 Gem Robbery


This looks so familiar to me (first 13 years of my life I lived near Hollywood Blvd and Vermont Ave). Where is it?


SEASON 3

Episode 91 Double Death


This building was probably located on Hillhurst Ave. in Los Angeles. However, it doesn't appear to exist any more. Anyone know the address? Reminds me of a bar.


Episode 105 Policewoman

  

This sequence of shots appears to have been filmed in an area near downtown Los Angeles.


SEASON 4

Episode 150 Auto Press

  
The Mobil gas station was across the street from a Los Angeles County Library.
