A new batch of recruits arrives at Police Academy, this time a group of civilian volunteers who have joined Commandant Lassard's new Citizens on Patrol program. Although the community relations project has strong governmental support, a disgusted Captain Harris is determined to see it fail.Written by

In early drafts, Mr. Kirkland (Arthur Batanides) was enrolled in the Citizens on Patrol program. Bud Kirkland's role was also meant to be bigger, but was cut down to only one scene, after the death of Andrew Paris' father, Jerry Paris, who had been scheduled to direct the film. See more »
At the end of the movie, the two balloons are in the air. As one of them goes down to land, we see a shot with balloons on the ground. In the next shot, one of them is still up and flying. See more »

Although the cinema version was intact the UK video version was cut by 8 secs to remove shots of Mahoney displaying a tube of Super Glue before administering it to Harris's megaphone. The cuts were restored in the upgraded 12 certificate DVD. See more »
The police academy misfits are trying to help make Commandant Lassard's "Citizens on Patrol" neighborhood watch program work. Jealous Captain Harris does everything he can to make sure it fails. Most of the gang is here and likable as usual. Glad to see G.W. Bailey back from the first movie. Oddly, Art Metrano's sidekick from the last two sequels is still in this and is now Bailey's sidekick. I actually think it works better this way. Film debut of David Spade as a skateboarding recruit. Sharon Stone plays the requisite pretty woman Steve Guttenberg works his charms on. Love the '80s fads and clothing. The series is running on empty here but there are still some funny parts here and there. Bobcat Goldthwait gets most of the best lines. This was the last of the series to feature Bobcat or Guttenberg. The series really shouldn't have tried to continue without them.
