Chief Bookem is the only police officer of Cappy Town, and there isn't much for him to do, but he doesn't let that discourage him. He lives in his house/police station with his wife Buttercup. Bookem sports a standard teal police uniform with the cap and badge included. He also has a belt with a gun in his pouch, which he never uses. Not only is he a police officer, but also a traffic director, as seen in Hail to the Chief.

In the episode, Hail to the Chief, he said that he was a former member of a military group called the Rough Ranger Corps. This, however, turned out to be a false story he told to the children of Cappy Town to entertain them and it was his brother who was in the Rangers.

There is only one criminal in his jail cell who can easily get out of the cell if he wants to.


  • His Dub name is based on the phrase "Book 'em", meaning to arrest someone.
  • In the dub, whenever he agrees with someone, he uses the phrase "as long as it's legal", another reference to his work as a police officer.
  • In most cases, all uses of Chief Bookem's gun were deleted in the dub.
  • Bookem is the chief's last name; his first name is never revealed.
