TV police shows escapist fare HOLLYWOOD (AP) ''Col-j umbo is pure says po- liceman-author Joseph Wam- baugh. "Nothing's technically correct about the show. But what difference does that make? It's fun to watch." The same goes, he says, for other polire shows on television, where the revised maxim reads: Crime and its detection do In- j deed pay. Dennis Weaver, once Mar- shall Dillon's limping deputy, now prowls the big city in a crimp-brimmed Stetson. From his wheelchair, Raymond Burr helps San Francisco police solve crimes for a fifth season.

"Acting styles says William Conrad, CBS' 250-pound but agile investigator Frank Cannon. "But, no, basically it's the same thing. You play a human being, because detec- tives are human beings."

Price says of the concept. "We have the whole field of great detectives to deal with clear back to Edgar Allan Poe.'1 Detective S g t, Wambaugh, whose novel about the Los An- geles police, The New Centu- rions, became a best seller, sees little attempt at realism on TV. "TV is for mass consumption. Police shows are pure escapist fare, but why not? If people want realism they can read my books. "Columbo is a nondescript. clever little character, amusing to the audience. On Adam 12P they're not human beings but they don't have to be. The in- lent is to show exciting experi- ences. Do you laiow any police- men or any people who act like that? With no No glands? "I'm Euro you never met an FBI a Efrem Zimbalist Jr. on The FBI. Rock Hudson's show Is fantasy.
