Police Academy is a 1984 American comedy film directed by Hugh Wilson in his directorial debut, and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.

The film was produced by The Ladd Company. It premiered on March 23, 1984. It grossed $8.5 million in its opening weekend and over $149 million worldwide,

Due to a shortage of police officers, Mary Sue Beal, the mayor of an unnamed city, requires the police department to accept all recruits.

Easy-going Carey Mahoney, who has repeatedly gotten in legal trouble while standing up to arrogance, is given a choice by Police Captain Reed: enroll in the police academy or go to jail. Mahoney agrees to the former, but plans to be such a bad student that he’s expelled.

But he cannot quit, if he quits he can go to jail. The chief of police, Henry Hurst, outraged by the Mayor’s plan, decides to make the experience so bad for the new recruits that they give up.
