  • Carey Mahoney – The most clever and leader of the cadets. Mahoney is always ready to lend a hand to his companions.
  • Larvell Jones – Mahoney's usual sidekick. He is a martial arts master, but his main talent is beatboxing – he is able to imitate all manner of noises, including sirens, gunfire, helicopters, and so forth.
  • Carl Sweetchuck – Sweetchuck is the most cowardly of the group. He is very accident prone and oblivious to the harm caused by his clumsiness.
  • Zed McGlunk – Carl's patrol partner and messy and unkempt member of the group. Zed usually drags his partner along in his wily and erratic pursuits.
  • Moses Hightower – Hightower is known for his great size and physical strength. His stature often comes into play when the characters find themselves in situations in which bars must be bent or walls need to smash through.
  • Laverne Hooks – Moses' patrol partner who is small, soft-spoken, and passive. However, she has shown herself capable of being extremely forceful and loud in situations in which she is provoked.
  • Thomas Conklin – "House" is known for his large frame and his congenial nature. He is always hungry and proves himself to be cowardly. He patrols with Sweetchuck and Zed and often accompanies them in their escapades.
  • Eugene Tackleberry – Characterized by a pronounced jaw and almost always wears glasses and helmet, is a weapons fanatic. He has a weakness for his fellow partner Callahan. He often uses the armored car of the police which he usually wrecks. He is fond of using a bazooka.
  • Debbie Callahan – Eugene's patrol partner and the statuesque beauty of the group who is extremely resilient and has a beautiful singing voice.
