    Years ago, an FTO at a PD around here had his trainee pull in to McDonald's, go inside and ask the manager for an application.

    I don't think It'll happen in the US because we don't trust our government. We are a country of skeptics, raised by skeptics, founded by skeptics. - Amaroq

        I had a captain yell at me to take off my badge. I did. He the asked me what it said on the badge. I said, "Patrolman." He said "if you want to keep it, shut up and go do it." I did.
        Never did like him. But I worked for him. That's all I had to know.

          Our FTO program used to cut people left and right up until about two-three years ago. Now it's like an youth soccer team where everyone gets a trophy (badge). A lot of people who are on the bubble get shuffled through easy FTO's and the slow upper class divisions.

            My 1st rookie now has 20 yrs on & several are PTO's themselves now. Yeah, it has changed, but what hasn't? Not all of it is good, but not all of it is bad either.

            I'm not 1 that had my rook do push-ups beside the patrol car because he missed his call sign. But, if I thought that was the way to get through to him I would've. I did have 1 write himself a ticket for disobeying a stop sign (it happened at least once a shift 3 nights in a row)....he didn't do it again.

Standards need to be set and adhered to, but why add to the considerable stress that the new officer is already experiencing?

              There's a lot to learn as a trainee and FTOs don't need to give them examples of bad behavior as well as good. Adhere to the training requirements, demonstrate some patience with the newbies and set the bar "high" by providing a good example for them to emulate.
