Trivia
Although Frank Columbo is a Detective Lieutenant in the L.A.P.D. he is rarely seen reporting to a superior or even interacting in any significant way with other police officers during an investigation. In most episodes he operates virtually as a private detective even to the extent of driving his unmodified personal vehicle while on duty.
