When budget cuts threaten to shut down one of the city's two police academies, Comdt. Lassard (George Gaynes) looks to Mahoney (Steve Guttenberg), Hightower (Bubba Smith) and the rest of the gang to whip a new batch of recruits into shape so that Comdt. Mauser's (Art Metrano) academy will get the axe instead. But the meddling Mauser has some dirty tricks up his sleeve. Bob Goldthwait and Tim Kazurinsky co-star.
