When Captain Harris tells the cadets that Blankes and Copeland will be the cadets in charge, he says ¨Blankes and Dopeland.¨ This is probably deliberate as Captain Harris doesn't respect Copeland as much as Blankes, as indicated by Harris's reaction to Copeland attempting to shake Harris's hand earlier.

In the network television and syndicated versions, the scene that has a hooker performing oral sex on Commandant Lassard while he is giving a speech to a group of fellow police officials has been cut down. The scene is cut from right before we hear Lassard's pants being unzipped, after which it goes to a shot of Lt. Harris sitting at Lassard's desk, and then goes back to the end of the oral sex sequence when Lassard invites the officials to have lunch, and when he discovers Mahoney under the podium.
