Hooks (played by Marion Ramsey in the movies and Denise Pidgeon in the cartoon) is a diminutive, soft-spoken and unassertive woman with a very high-pitched voice, who often has trouble putting people in line. However, she is known for becoming aggressive and authoritative when frustrated or otherwise pushed to her limit, punching people out or pulling her service weapon, screeching the memorable phrase: "Don't move, dirtbag!" The word "dirtbag" is possibly something she inherited from her days in the Police Academy, under the training of then-Lieutenant Thaddeus Harris. In the third movie, Hooks became more assertive in keeping people in line. She was the first one who quickly figured out that her former cadets, Blankes and Copeland are working with Mauser to shut down the Metropolitian Police Academy to humiliate Lassard, but kept it to herself. When they found out too late that Hooks knew the truth, she knocked Blankes and Copeland out and told Cadet Fackler(Debralee Scott) to inform Mahoney of the situation with the governor. She appears in the first six films of the franchise and in the animated series. She is seen with Hightower in the 5th and the 6th films and in the animated series.
