The Sheriff of Cochise is an American police crime drama television series of 79 black-and-white episodes broadcast from 1956 to 1958. The show has two seasons of 39 episodes, and there is an additional standalone episode. Each episode runs for 30 minutes. The series features John Bromfield as Frank Morgan, the sheriff of Cochise County, Arizona. The series is succeeded by U.S. Marshal, in which Morgan was promoted to be the United States marshal for Arizona.[1]


Frank Morgan is the sheriff of Cochise County, Arizona, and his duties force him to go after people breaking the law in his home county. These include robbers, thugs, con artists, killers, and other lawbreakers. The series is based on Westerns, though with a contemporary twist. Morgan drives a Chrysler station wagon, rarely fights personally, and uses radios and fingerprints to aid in his investigations.[2]
