In her role as a teacher to the cadets, she usually gets into situations where after explaining or demonstrating the lesson, she is usually flanked by the male cadets volunteering to be her next test-subject. For example, in the first film, while teaching self-defense, she sits on Leslie Barbara's face. After asking who wants to volunteer next, all the male cadets raise their hands and and say they want to be next. In the fourth film, during a water safety lesson, she plays a drowning victim. After coming up to the surface, her t-shirt is see-through (and she's possibly not wearing a bra). She asks who's going to save her, and all the male cadets dive or jump into the pool, and she frantically swims away.She is an avid weightlifter and also knows martial arts and has a good singing voice. In the first film, she has a relationship with Cadet George Martin. In the third and fourth films, she has a relationship with Japanese foreign exchange student, Cadet Tomoko Nogata. She is seen with Eugene Tackleberry in the 4th and the 5th films and in the animated series. She appears in every film except the second, and is promoted to Lieutenant and then Captain.
In the Police Academy: The Series episode "Dead Man Talking", Callahan has retired from the Police Force and has been elected District Attorney.
Her name is a reference to Harry Callahan, the star of the Dirty Harry series of films.
