Trivia
The title of the novel and the film referred to officers in the army of ancient Rome. The name dates from the Marian reforms of 107 BC. The "new" aspect refers to the fact that these centurions (i.e., police officers) are the modern-day equivalents of centurions who battle in an urban jungle, as distinct from the world of ancient times.

George C. Scott wears the old eight-point hat that the LAPD stopped wearing in the late-'60s/early-'70s, while other officers wear the current round "wheel" hat. Scott wore it because his character was an "old-line" police officer.
