Detective 516 (July 1982) has the second half of the Crime Academy story. Paul Kupperberg joins Gerry Conway in scripting, while Don Newton and Frank Chiaramonte handle the art.
As Batman penetrates the Crime Academy, the story checks up on some of the continuing plots. Boss Thorne can’t even get through a game of billiards without Hugo Strange’s ghost showing up to taunt him.
Jim Gordon joins Jason Bard’s detective agency, declaring his intent to bring down mayor Hamilton Hill.
So Batman brings down the Crime Academy on his own. I didn’t take any shots of this, but I should mention that Dick has continued to fall for the exotic Dala, but she turns out to be linked with evil people, and he is in peril (oh, no!)
