An Insider's History of the LAPD BADGE OF HONOR A Two Disc, Six-Hour History of the Los Angeles Police Department Documentary Color / 360 Mins. Meticulously researched for over five years, this highly acclaimed six-hour video history takes the viewer inside the Los Angeles police department. From a crazy and Wild West town of the 19th Century to the challenges of a new millennium. We hear from patrolmen to Police Chiefs, from a 101 year old policeman to the newest recruit. Using rare photographs and film clips, this exciting and entertaining series tells the history of the LAPD from within, from the men and women who made history and proudly wore the "Badge of Honor." Volume 1: "The Vigilante Era" 1850 -1889. The history of the LAPD began in the city known "as the most miserable pest hole in the state." A Glimmer of Professionalism" 1889. 1900. Chief John Glass turned what was in essence a group of watchmen into professional officers of that day. Discipline and organization was the order of the day. Volume 2: 'New Century - New Challenges" 1900. 1920. As the new century began, the LAPD would face its worst period of corruption. For the next 40 years. LAPD would struggle with a seemingly endless cycle of reform. The Dark Days" 1920 1930. The fun and hoopla of the Roaring 20's ushered in new problems for the LAPD, including the Great Depression, the prohibition of alcohol, and meddlesome politicians. Volume 3: "The Turbulent Thirties" 1930 -1939. Los Angeles and the LARD of the 1930's was a society gone wrong. The law was bought. Gambling ships were anchored off shore while police exams were being sold out of a back room in City Hall. Age of Reform and Professionalism" 1940 -1949. From the turmoil of the 1930's a new LAPD emerged. The new breed of LAPD didn't buy their jobs, they earned them. Volume 4: 'The Era of William H. Parker" 1950.1966. No person in the history of the LARD had a more significant impact in professionalizing the department then Parker. "Reaching Out" 1966 -1918. For most of the 20th Century, the LAPD has stressed the importance of working with and for the community. Volume 5: 'A (op's Chief' 1918 -1992. Police Chief Daryl Gates faced one crisis after another as head of the LAPD. "The New Millennium" 1992 - 2000. Chief Willie Williams came to Los Angeles surrounded by the political establishment. But for a department steep with tradition, on outsider would not find the going very easy.

For DVD Player (North American NTSC)

WHAT YOU GET:

This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.

IMAGES:

All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.

COMPATIBILITY:

Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.

PLATFORM:

Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.

MEDIA FORMAT:

Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A SMOOTH PURCHASE:

  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.
