This show is based on the hit movie about a group of misfit police officers who are always getting into trouble. Cmdt. Lassard is always trying to capture the police academy crew in the middle of some mischief that would suspend or expel them from the force. He is aided by his yes-man, Proctor. Mahoney leads the group into whatever messes they get themselves into. No matter how silly they get, they still capture the bad guys in the end.
