  • Police academy scenarios

    I’m in the academy and for whatever reason I get really nervous through the scenarios. Any help with that . Also what to expect in each of the scenarios and what they might be? I’ve read the scenario grading guide but still
    sometimes they throw things in there .

    Best advice I can give is to learn from them. I did poorly on a few scenarios when I was in the academy but they also taught me the most. It’s natural to feel nervous just don’t let it snowball into causing officer safety issues. Learn from your experiences. They set these scenarios up for a reason. If you have any questions feel free to PM me.

      I considered myself a real take charge type of person. Additionally being a New Yorker instills a certain type of confidence that borders on aggression.

      First scenario in the academy my legs felt like noodles and my voice was shaky, and it was a simple scenario. I passed the scenario but it was humbling that I wasn’t my usual loud and annoying self.

      That feeling passed after I did more scenarios, and got more comfortable how to address a situation.

      Also, read/understand the material and pay attention to the instructor debrief. If you know the material, you gain the confidence you need to do the job.

        I looked the scenarios as the closest thing to actually doing the job. They gave us a couple of days where the whole day was scenarios.

        If you are scared during this, you will struggle in the real world. Review your LDs and whatever policies they gave you.

          Not scared honestly just nervous. I was in the car business for 10 years and have no problem talking to people.

            Not really. Just do it. Don’t overthink it. Honestly, academy scenarios are BS. The real world isn’t as robotic.

              Have fun with them. Go off their track and apply laws they didn’t include.

                  I sent two role-players to the ER... NEVER grab at my baton...EVER.

                  ( minor sutures and one blown out knee).

                    you should've been given a scenario book. It literally tells you step by step what you need to do for each scenario. Hit every box, pass every scenario. for the final post mandated scenarios, They aren't trying to surprise you. The scenarios you do at the academy with your training officers will be way harder than the final ones. All i can recommend is to volunteer for as many scenarios as possible and get the reps.

                        We did some scenarios in front of a bunch of Jr. Cadets for a local PD. It was pretty interesting having not only kids but local LEOs and some big wigs for the Training Center there as well. The most impressive thing was that only one F-Bomb was dropped that day.

                          Be ready for a new one:

                          1. You have completed 34 weeks of POST basic academy, 6 months of field training, and you are two days shy of completing your probationary period:

                          A citizen has recorded you engaging in a use of force which is both within policy, and within the law. This video has been uploaded to YouTube and the community is upset

                          Do you:

                          A. Resign
                          B. Wait to be terminated without cause, as you're still a probationary employee.

                          Choose carefully.
                          Other officer: Oh that's right, I forgot, you're God's gift to police work.
                          Me: At least someone recognizes it.

                          Turns out basic police work isn't so hard, you just have to leave the station.
