Mauser (or Miser in the series; Bouser in the animated series; Played by Art Metrano in the films) is a similar character to Harris, and his role in the movies is essentially the same. Playing a ruthless and demeaning, success-driven officer, Mauser is often the butt of many of the jokes played by Lassard's men. His lackey is Proctor. He appears in Police Academy 2 : Their First Assignment and Police Academy 3 : Back In Training. In Police Academy 2, he tricks his way into becoming Captain of the Precinct.
In Police Academy 3, he is the new Commandant of the military police academy and took advantage of Blankes and Copeland's desire to seek revenge on Lassard for graduating at the bottom of their class.
His police academy is eventually dismantled by the state government as his cadets prove to be far less responsive to actual emergencies than Lassard's men.
However, in the animated series, Mauser becomes a good character and is head of the K9 Corps. His attitude towards Mahoney and the others improves drastically. Mauser's attitude towards Harris is similar to Hurst's(in the later films) that he points out his flaws and belittles Harris for his behavior.
