|Occupation:||Officer (Washington State Police)|
Officer Kaplan is a patrol officer for the Washington State Police. When he saw Marion Crane driving past he followed her and signaled to her to pull her car over. Approaching her car, he told her he stopped her due to her coat hanging out of the trunk. After he opened the trunk to fix it he allowed her to continue on her journey.
- In the original 1960 Alfred Hitchcock film Psycho the patrol officer was unnamed and was portrayed by Mort Mills. The actor's full name was Mortimer Morris Kaplan so it is possible that the character's name was chosen as a homage.
