Patricia ‘Casey’ Jones (Beverly Garland) was a policewoman with the 16th precinct in New York City whose crime-fighting assignments often called for her to go undercover – as a decoy (hence the title) – in some of the seediest and most dangerous parts of the city.
Like the series Naked City, Decoy was filmed on the actual streets of New York, and storylines capture the feel of the city at the time – a fascinating time capsule of the Big Apple in the 1950s.
Casey wore badge number 300 and earned $75 a week.
