Ryker helps out an old friend
Retired cop Art Haskell, a friend of Ryker's is now head of a security force in a suburban neighborhood. He needs help solving some burglaries and Ryker offers his three rookies for the job.

An OK episode, not one of the best but gives good roles to three guest actors. Pat Hingle plays Haskell, he had appeared many films and TV shows including the classic "Splendor In The Grass". Mark Lenard (Spock's father on Star Trek) plays a gas station owner who is the one behind the burglaries, he is bitter over being kicked out of a tennis club. Dick Van Patten (later on Eight Is Enough) is a constantly complaining resident who wants Haskell fired.
