Not to be confused with Police Sergeant from Ghostbusters II

The Police Sergeant [1] is a police officer who was involved in Louis Tully's arrest when he was possessed by Vinz Clortho.



After Louis was possessed by Vinz Clortho, he was soon arrested by the police. The Sergeant and his men didn't know what to do with him. Bellevue Hospital didn't want Louis and the Sergeant was afraid to put him in the lock-up. He thought of the Ghostbusters and decided to check with them. Janine Melnitz answered his knock and brought out Egon Spengler. After running a sweep with the P.K.E. Meter, Egon took Louis from the Sergeant's custody.


  • In the 8/5/1983 draft, the Police Sergeant admits it took him and seven officers to restrain the possessed Louis. [2]
  • The Police Sergeant's collar pin indicates he is with the 27th precinct.
  • In Ghostbusters: The Supernatural Spectacular, the Police Sergeant's surname was Rosenberg and he was from the 24th Precinct. [3]
