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 fourth movie, she teaches a lesson about saving drowning victims, in which she plays the drowning victim: After she dives in the pool, swims to the middle, and surfaces with her white t-shirt hugging tight to her body, she asks, "Now, who is going to save me?" Immediately, all the male cadets jump into the pool and swim after her, while she frantically tries to get away. Another example is in the first movie, where she demonstrates self-defense: Leslie Barbara is her test subject, whom she swiftly takes down and sits on his face. When she asks for volunteers, all the male cadets promptly and eagerly volunteer.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, 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.
