Corrected entry: In the riot scene Mahoney's window is open when he jumps into the police car and you don't see him close it, then when the rioters get to the police car it is closed.

Correction: That is because he rolled up his window off screen when the camera is on the Commandant, who is shown rolling his up.

Corrected entry: I know they can't throw people out, but wouldn't a liberalised Police Service take a very dim view of bigots such as Copeland?

Correction: This seems more like the poster's personal opinion than a mistake.

Corrected entry: Cadets Blanks and Copeland have all their hair shorn off at the police barber because they think that it's like the army. When they discover that it wasn't necessary, both men look quite horrified. Yet over the whole course of training, which took about 12 or 14 weeks, their hair does not grow back even an inch. And it's quite unlikely that they decided to keep it that short since they seemed to like having hair.

Correction: IMHO, it is certainly possible that once they got used to the idea, that they liked it or at least decided to try it out for a while. Many men keep their crewcuts even after leaving the military even though they would never have had a crewcut before.

Corrected entry: All Jones has is a microphone, which is hooked up to something, (we never see what, though), and he is able to control the police station and Police Academy's PA systems. So what is he carrying around which makes him able to do this? (And where can I get one)?

Padzter

Correction: When we first meet Jones, we see that his microphone is hooked up to a portable bullhorn, of the type police use for crowd control. Jones does not control the PA systems, people just think that's where the sound is coming from.

Continuity mistake: When the female trainee is doing the driver training, she goes under the water spray but the next shot shows the windscreen dry and clean. There is no sign of the wipers being used.

Trivia: The character of Callahan was supposed to be a mannish woman. Leslie Easterbrook (who was cast to play her) had to convince the filmmakers to let her portray Callahan as a sexy but tough seductress.

Question: Why did Mahoney get a medal at the end? All he did was run up a building and got himself taken hostage. Hightower deserved his cause he knocked the guy out, saved Harris and Mahoney and defused the situation. Even if it was for bravery or heroism, Mahoney achieved nothing with his actions and shouldn't have been rewarded.

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: Just because you fail in your attempt at heroics doesn't mean you weren't brave as hell for trying. Mahoney knowingly put himself in a very dangerous situation with the sole intent of saving two of his fellow officers. That's bravery.
