Angel Grove Police Department
After the Rangers' battle with Goatan, a police officer brought the mud-covered Bulk and Skull to the Youth Center to see if someone could positively identify them after they'd been swimming in the pond at Angel Grove Park to escape from Goatan.
The real police officers attending the Junior Police Patrol graduation wore black
uniforms, while the graduating Junior
Police cadets wore blue shirts with black pants and hats, as would
be their standard uniforms.
The police department sponsored a horse trek for
Nature Appreciation Week, and the six teens, Bulk, Skull, and Lt. Stone went riding; it was interrupted by an earthquake and moment of darkness caused by Master Vile's arrival.
In the simulated past (see "Orb of
Doom"), police officer with a megaphone was yelling at the people in
the carnival parking lot to clear the
area and return to their homes, as Angel
Grove was now under mandatory curfew following the attack of Zedd, Rita, Goldar, and Rito, all
Two officers took young Bulk, Skull, Rocky, Adam, Aisha, and Billy to the
police station for violating the curfew.
The five kids were
walking together through the Angel Grove Warehouse
District, where a megaphone from a police van told them and others
there that the city was under attack and
under a mandatory curfew; at the time, Professor Longnose and five monsters were attacking the desert.
In the Youth
Center, Kat present her finished civics
project, the German Shepard Smokey, whom she had trained for the police and then gave to Lt. Stone.
Smokey was Angel Grove's first specially trained rescue
Lt. Stone had Bulk and Skull pick up trash in the park left over from the police academy
picnic, and he would be back within the hour.
Bulk's badge read "Police
Officer," "Metropolitan," and "3226," before Rocky's mutant plant took a bite out of it.
Following the Cogs' theft
of Rocky's and Skull's
plants, a woman on Lt.
Stone's radio reported, "Command Central to Lt.
Stone. We have a report of a break-in at the Angel Grove community greenhouse. Several
rare species of plants have reportedly been taken."
The police horticultural society was having its
final judging on what seemed to be a Sunday afternoon, and Lt. Stone's "American beauties" had never lost.
At the judging, the judges discovered that Lt. Stone's plants were plastic; Bulk and Skull had used plastic plants to
replace the ones which had been killed by Defoliator.
American arts festival in the Youth
Center was the first event sponsored by the police cultural
committee that year.
Since the Native
American arts festival had to be a big event, Lt. Stone put Bulk and
Skull in charge of sales.
Bulk and Skull
didn't seem particularly impressed by the job of selling raffle tickets,
until Lt. Stone mentioned that the prize for
selling the most tickets for the silver and turquoise arrowhead was an
all-expense paid trip to Hawaii.
After encountering Main Drain at the playground, Bulk and Skull rushed into the Youth Center, with Bulk telling someone to call 911, as there was a monster on the playground.
son of the chief of
police, sold a large number of raffle tickets and almost certainly
secured the trip to Maui.
Bulk and Skull buy fifty tickets each
from him; this would have greatly increased Bulk and Skull's chance of winning the
silver and turquoise arrowhead.
Lt. Stone said he'd
wanted to introduce Connie to two
of his best officers, but since they were on assignment, Bulk and Skull had to do.
Crandall fired Lt. Stone for the
unacceptable behavior of Bulk and Skull;
Bulk and Skull, then the chief's daughter Connie, quit the Junior Police as well.
Mrs. Filler, a woman whose dog, Princess, had run
away when frightened by the landing of Pyramidas, went to The
Private Eyes Have It Detective Agency and hired Bulk and Skull to find the dog, since the
police were too busy.
Lt. Stone, Bulk, and Skull were doing
security jobs at the baseball stadium in black uniforms which looked
like police uniforms.
Lt. Stone told Bulk and Skull that he didn't have to remind
them of their luck in getting re-hired.
Lt. Stone assigned Bulk and Skull to relieve him of his duties
at the International Dance-a-thon at 1900 hours; they apparently never made it, having been abducted by Divatox.
Bulk and Skull
were now wearing their normal uniforms again, with their shirts light
blue rather than black.
Lt. Stone had told Bulk and Skull that the only way they'd get
back to the force permanently was if they put tickets on fifty cars by
the end of the day, but they'd gone to a parking lot near the lake, where there were no cars.
Captain Crandall had decided
to give Lt. Stone one final chance, making Lt. Stone decide to give Bulk and Skull one final chance as well.
Lt. Stone sent Bulk and Skull to the Angel Grove Energy Center to take over for the
private security company that had been let go; he said this was their
When Elgar confronted Bulk and Skull at the energy center, saying he'd blast
them if they didn't step aside, they boldly did a choreographed sequence
with their batons, having learned it in their last class at the academy.
Bulk and Skull had
a police small radio with them.
When Bulk tried calling
for help after he and Skull had been turned into chimps, two police officers in a patrol car only heard chimp
squealing; when one officer asked the other, Bob, what he made of it,
Bob replied, "Just some kids messing around. Turn that thing off. Nothing ever happens on this shift anyway."
As Adelle told two
police officers about her stolen Surf Spot
delivery van, stolen around ten that morning after someone had taken her
keys, Chuck listened, amused; then, back at his pool table, Chuck told fellow car thieves David and Susie that the police didn't have
Driving David, Susie, and Andros in a stolen car, Chuck spotted his friend Mikey and
pulled up to a curb near some shops where a guy in ragged jeans ran up
and grabbed an old woman's purse; as Mikey was running, Andros jumped out, grabbed the purse, and
struggled with the thief until a police officer ran up and restrained
Another day, two officers caught Chuck trying to hot-wire a red
Jeep and took him away.
David and Susie later returned the stolen van and keys to Adelle and apologized; as compensation for the crime, they voluntarily began working for her; the police were not involved.
On the steps leading up to the apartments with
his mom, young Patrick told
Officer Hemming, who was walking by, that he'd seen a bank robbery
happening back some distance; the officer gave a skeptical look, but Patrick remained insistent; Officer Hemming replied that his tall tales would get him into trouble one day.
That night after thousands of Craterites had parachuted down from the Megaship, Officer Hemming was among the Angel Grove citizens to be tied up by a Craterite and then replaced; while being
impersonated by a Craterite the next day,
he was tied up in the back seat of his patrol car, with his
uniform but without his hat.
Some time after the Craterites' destruction, the real Officer
Hemming saw Patrick at the Surf Spot, and Patrick apologized for telling lies,
having learned his lesson; Officer Hemming told him it was a hard lesson
Officer Hemming was alarmed when Bulk and Skull shouted for nobody to move,
but he laughed with everyone else when the two accidentally dissolved
their own clothes with their "space alien
As people were rushing through a rubble-filled
area during an alien termite
attack downtown, a police officer told Ashley
and Mrs. Hammond they needed
to clear the area; Ashley left, telling her grandmother to go with the
police, but Mrs. Hammond,
thinking Ashley was in trouble, struggled with
the officer and then flipped him onto the ground and drove off with his
car, promising to bring it back.
Mrs. Hammond used the stolen patrol car to ram the Termitus monster and was then saved from hitting a wall by the Yellow Ranger; no punishment was shown for her actions.
MMPR: The Movie
The Angel Grove Police Department had a team in
the Angel Grove Jump-a-thon
skydiving contest; their banner was black.
A TV reporter later announced that Angel Grove police had been fielding hundreds
of calls from concerned citizens as the
number of missing parents continued to grow; the "missing" parents could actually be seen walking in a zombie-like manner down various public thoroughfares at the time.
