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

When Nogata reunites with Callahan in a seemingly intimate moment, she informs him that "in America, talk is cheap", just as she said to him when they first met in Police Academy 3: Back in Training (1986). See more »

[after the Citizens On Patrol team accidentally foil a police sting operation, they're met with an angry Capt. Harris and sidekick Lt. Proctor, the former also delighted that his plan to make the program fail succeeded]
[furious; to Mahoney, the trainers, and the downtrodden civilian recruits]
Three months' work out the window, down the drain. Your Citizens on Patrol just screwed up the single biggest police undercover sting operation
in the HISTORY OF THIS CITY!

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 force is overworked and understaffed so they come up with an idea to train citizens so that they can patrol their own streets. Of course our gang gets a group of rejects that they must train into shape. This was the beginning of the end for this series and while there are a few funny scenes the thing still can't keep afloat. The regular cast including Guttenberg, Smith, Winslow, Graf and Easterbrook are back but we've also got G.W. Bailey coming back as Harris, the main villain from the first film. Harris actually steals the film and gives an energized performance but that still isn't saying too much as the screenplay is very weak and basically just recycles jokes from previous films. Even the regulars seem rather tired and bored. Bobcat Goldthwait is back as well but most of his jokes seemed aimed at his bad speech. Heck, we even get a pre-fame Sharon Stone and David Spade but neither add much. The best sequence for me has always been the one where the veterans try to teach the new guys that they aren't ready to be police and take them out on the case of a voodoo man who is actually being played by Smith.
