Le commandant Lassard, qui atteint cette année l'âge de la retraite, vient d'être désigné comme le meilleur chef d'académie de la décennie. Et c'est à Miami, à l'occasion d'un congrès de policiers, qu'il a décidé de fêter son départ. Il a d'ailleurs invité quelques uns de ses élèves à l'accompagner en Floride.

Il a en effet l'intention de se faire remarquer par le gratin de la police américaine...

Part of Police Academy Collection

Police Academy is a series of American comedy films, the first six of which were made in the 1980s. The seventh and to date last installment, Mission to Moscow, was released in 1994. The new film is scheduled for production for 2014. The series opened with Police Academy (1984) which started with the premise that a new mayor had announced a policy requiring the police department to accept all willing recruits. The movie followed a group of misfit recruits in their attempts to prove themselves capable of being police officers. The main character, Carey Mahoney (Steve Guttenberg), was a repeat offender who was forced to join the police academy as punishment.

    New rules enforced by the Lady Mayoress mean that sex, weight, height and intelligence need no longer be a factor for joining the Police Force. This opens the floodgates for all and sundry to enter the Police Academy, much to the chagrin of the instructors. Not everyone is there through choice, though. Social misfit Mahoney has been forced to sign up as the only alternative to a jail sentence and it doesn't take long before he falls foul of the boorish Lieutenant Harris. But before long, Mahoney realises that he is enjoying being a police cadet and decides he wants to stay... while Harris decides he wants Mahoney out!
