The lives and work of the staff of an inner city police precinct.
A hallmark in the development of television drama, this was the first straight drama to incorporate multi-episode story arcs and sweeping narrative, which had heretofore only been used in soap operas. Now all dramas use this technique, from Game of Thrones (2011) to Pretty Little Liars (2010), and this can all be traced back to this series.
The Hill Street Precinct E.A.T. van, which is also used as the van that the Polk Ave. Precinct used to drop the homeless off on the Hill, is number 2227. There is also a squad car with the same number. The same with 2225, which is used on a larger newer E.A.T. van as well as the number for a squad car. Each number should have only been used one time.
After the credits it shows the MTM kitten wearing a policeman's hat to match this show.
