The policewoman[1] is a character who first appears in the ending of "No Free Rides." She became a recurring character ever since her appearance in "Call the Cops."



She is a light green fish with balding red curly hair who wears the Bikini Bottom police uniform of a blue cap and pants, a white collared long-sleeved shirt and black shoes.


She seems to take her job very seriously, unlike most officers in Bikini Bottom who are usually lazy and easily fooled by others even when they are obviously breaking the law. She also seems to be very aggressive and believes that no one is innocent, showing that she cannot be easily fooled by nearly anyone. 

Role in series

"No Free Rides"

She appears at the end of the episode when SpongeBob and Mrs. Puff talk in the Bikini Bottom Jail.

"Goo Goo Gas"

She and Officer John Slugfish carry away Plankton when SpongeBob calls the cops on him, however, due to his size compared to the handcuffs, he manages to escape, but the two officers end up running after him.

"Call the Cops"

The lady officer stops Plankton from stealing the Krabby Patty secret formula and takes it as evidence, much to Mr. Krabs' dismay, so he and SpongeBob decided to go to the Bikini Bottom Police Department and retrieve the formula. She also tells Patrick to sleep it off after eating too many Goofy Goober ice creams.

"The Krusty Slammer"

She arrests Plankton for vandalizing the Krusty Krab, but when she gets to the jail, she realizes that it's full, so she releases him, but says that if someone opened a jail, Plankton could be arrested and get a lot of money. When Mr. Krabs hears this, he instantly takes up the offer, and gets the reward. Later on, she gives more prisoners to Mr. Krabs. Mr. Krabs accepts this, since he'll get a myriad of money.

At the end of the episode, after SpongeBob brings back all the prisoners since they missed the Krusty Krab after getting let out by Mr. Krabs, the lady officer says that letting prisoners go early is also a crime, and she arrests Mr. Krabs. However, since the Krusty Krab was full, she had the Chum Bucket be Mr. Krabs' prison.

"Insecurity Guards"

She arrests Squidward for breaking into the museum. After SpongeBob hangs up the hideous painting Squidward made, the lady officer asks if he truly likes the painting. Squidward answers yes and laughs like a complete maniac. She sends him away to jail in retaliation.

"Dirty Bubble Returns"

She traps the small Dirty Bubble in a jar after SpongeBob absorbed all of his dirt.


  • She has a regular American English accent in "Call the Cops," but has an Irish English accent in "The Krusty Slammer."
