Birthplace: Santa Monica, California, USA

He may not had ever truly said "Just the facts, ma'am," but Jack Webb was forever immortalized as the hard-nosed Los Angeles Police Detective Joe Friday of "Dragnet," as well as the creator of the hit television series "Adam-12" (NBC 1968-1975) and "Emergency!" (NBC 1972-77). For bringing a positive image to the LAPD with "Dragnet," Webb was given a funeral with full police honors upon his death in 1982. Even his character Sgt. Joe Friday's police badge number #714 was retired by the LAPD. Webb was posthumously given two stars at the Hollywood Walk of Fame, one for radio and one for television. It was only an appropriate honor given to the creator of one of the most influential police dramas in television history.
