He is a muscular, lavender fish with blonde hair and a small mustache and also wears sunglasses. He was always seen in his uniform which is police blue with a matching hat. His police suit consists of a black belt, black boots, and a baton.
Al Priss always seems to be in good spirits. Although cheerful to his wife, he can be shown to be ignorant as he didn't recognize Miss Gristlepuss' hatred to Krabby Patties. In segments of the episode, he is shown to be hungry occasionally.
He was summoned by his wife to close down the Krusty Krab as she opposed "fun and delicious" foods. Mr. Krabs persistently opens a secret Krusty Krab, but he wasn't entirely secured from the law. Miss Gristlepuss uncovered it with Plankton's help and brought SWAT Team to purge it of the Krabby Patties and arrest Mr. Krabs.
However, due to the Chief's liking of Krabby Patties, Miss Gristlepuss was angered, but when she tripped with a Krabby Patty it dropped into her mouth, she had a change in heart.
