Storyline

Convinced that his loyal police force is overworked, and above all, understaffed, silver-haired Commandant Eric Lassard comes up with a bold idea: why not recruit eager civilians to lend a hand in crushing crime? With this in mind, the ambitious "Citizens On Patrol" crime-fighting programme comes to life; nevertheless, the duplicitous and always slimy arch-rival of the Police Academy (1984), Captain Harris, is bent on sabotaging the operation, having ulterior motives. Can Officer Mahoney, and the rest of the team, get the recruits into shape, and get, once more, Lassard out of the tight spot? Written by Nick Riganas

The best of the 'Police Academy' movies!
2 July 2001 | by jellyneckrSee all my reviews

POLICE ACADEMY 4: CITIZENS ON PATROL is in my opinion, the best of the POLICE ACADEMY movies. It is extremely funny for a sequel. I have seen this movie at least ten times on television and I feel that this movie is one of the best movies of the 80's. It is truly hilarious. I love it. I think it is one of the best comedies ever made.
