Police Woman revolved around Sgt. "Pepper" Anderson, an undercover police officer working for the Criminal Conspiracy Unit of the LAPD. Sergeant William "Bill" Crowley was her immediate superior, and Pete Royster and Joe Styles were the other half of the undercover team that investigated everything from murders to rape and drug crimes. In many episodes, Pepper went undercover (as a prostitute, nurse, teacher, flight attendant, prison inmate, dancer, waitress, etc.) in order to get close enough to the suspects to gain valuable information that would lead to their arrest.
