"Officer Beaples" is a policewoman that has had various roles in Wiggles videos, TV shows and concerts. She is a supporting character in the second series and a minor character in the rest.


  • She has been confirmed as female, despite her credits in Wiggledance! and The Wiggles Movie ("Policeperson" and "Policeman"), because of the line in Let's Go (We're Riding In The Big Red Car) "We'll all be waving to her too."
  • She first debuted in 1996 in Wiggledance!, not under the name Officer Beaples, but under the "Policeperson" seen in the Dorothy the Dinosaur song.
  • Leanne Halloran was the most well-known performer for Officer Beaples, playing the role from 1996-2000 (Halloran later reprised the role for two reunion shows in 2020). In 2005, Katherine Patrick played Officer Beaples. Since 2013, Caterina Mete has played the role.
  • Apart from her appearance in The Wiggles Movie, she never talks. She speaks by gestures and whistles, because of this she's nonverbal.
  • She was more of a main character around 1998-2000.
  • In TV Series 2, her gestures used cartoon sound effects (mostly by Hanna-Barbera)
  • Every so often, she has been seen with a moustache. She first wore a thin moustache in some early appearances, such as in the Movie and first TV Series. As of 2014, it returned, and it is much bigger.
  • She was officially given the name "Officer Beaples" in TV Series 1.
  • Sometimes, her name is spelt like "Officer Beeples".
  • Most of the time she communicates using gestures, the first time she spoke was in The Wiggles Movie.
