He does not appear in the animated series. Jones has expertise in martial arts, which he continues to use throughout the series to great success, often mimicking kung fu voice-over, as he does so. In the first part of the first film, he and the photo hut in which he works (which is in the shape of camera) are thrown off a bridge into a river. Copeland is portrayed as a bigot several times in the first movie. He derives pleasure from tormenting and belittling his subordinates - first the cadets he instructs at the academy, then Lassard's men whom he outranks. Played by Marco Bianco (ringleader), Ted Hanlan, F. Braun McAsh and Rob Watson. When Captain Harris was tasked with investigating a string of crimes at the beach, he is also responsible for getting all the officers undercover assignments, to which Mahoney and Jones are assigned to be sanitation workers picking up litter. It was the 11th highest-grossing film in the United States in 1985 with a total of $55.6 million. But later in the movie it is revealed that he is fourth generation American of a Spanish-speaking family and actually speaks in an American accent, but plays-up a Spanish accent and changes the pronunciation of his name, (he would pronounce his last name Mar-teen) to get girls. He hires three slightly dimwitted henchmen who have certain traits such as strength and agility. They get married, (driving off in a Bigfoot truck after their wedding), and have a son, Eugene Tackleberry Jr., (featured in the sixth film, played by Daniel Ben Wilson), who is every bit as enthusiastic about all of the same things as his parents. Kathleen Kirkland (played by Colleen Camp), he falls in love with her. Sweetchuck is in the animated series (along with Zed). His initial dislike of Mahoney is based in part on his belief that he is disrupting the development of people, "who might make pretty good police officers". Initially a member of Mauser's cadets, he is sent to Lassard's academy almost immediately, due to his "oddities". Many actors return from the first film to respectively reprise their roles. He also has an ability to communicate with parrots, training them to call Captain Harris a "dork." However, Sgt. Like Harris and Mauser, Copeland has also shown contempt for Mahoney, evident when he takes an off-beat approach to handle situations. Lassard isn't fooled and is able to point out the real Hurst from the fake with a Pinocchio test. Other times he works with Hooks and Hightower, such as a beach assignment where they go undercover as a civilian family, with House playing the "son" and Hooks and Hightower as the "mom" and "dad". In the first film, he unknowingly starts a chain reaction of events when he discards an apple which hits a biker, causing the biker to accuse a rival gang member (who is holding a bag of apples) of hitting him, which ignites a fight, then culminates into a riot. His intimidation for Hightower grew when he comes down the steps offended by the racial insult enough to flip the car over with Copeland inside(despite Harris and Hooks' pleas to stop). In the episode "Little Zed & Big Bertha" they are criminals, but in the episode "Wheels of Fortune" they become cops. He also becomes Zed's partner in the animated series. The fact that he graduates with a decoration for bravery speaks to that personal valor. "Tomoko" is normally a woman's name in Japanese. He is a Japanese cadet who features in the third and fourth films. He is later shown to be the leader of the criminal gang responsible for Governor Neilson's kidnapping at the charity regatta. In the live-action TV series, Tackleberry has 2 nephews, Cadets Dirk & Dean Tackleberry, who idolize him as their role model. However, he is the most humble and soft-spoken of all the characters.

Realizing too late she pretended to be fooled, both Blankes and Copeland were knocked out with one double-punch by Hooks. Sweetchuck first appeared in the second film, as a shop owner terrorized by Zed and his gang. In the 6th film, she proves her assertiveness by calling out the attorney for his infractions, including ignoring an officer of the law, tearing up a court summons and parking in a handicapped spot. In the "Team Tack" episode of Police Academy: The Series, Tackleberry was a captain, and mentions his wife Kathleen was one as well. Chad Copeland starts out as a cadet in the first film, and in his subsequent appearances moves further up the ranks. Since his father was a decorated police officer, Mahoney was given the choice of the police academy or jail by his father's former boss, Captain Reed, who did not want Mahoney's antics to reflect poorly on his father. Jones can imitate sounds such as a flat tire, a couple noisily eating fast food, gunfire, and, memorably, a badly-dubbed martial arts star. The Mayor's title is revoked and he is arrested along with his henchmen.

His surname is McGlunk. He even demonstrates trust in Tackleberry by requesting he be the one to shoot a locator bullet into the bad guy's car, notably calling him by his nickname "Tack" when doing so.
