    If I can add some advice based soley on my observations within the academy... it's so important to accept corrections (no matter the delivery). Humble yourself. Accept you have a lot to learn about everything.

    Identify areas where improvement is needed and take INITIATIVE to work on that on your own. Especially while we're in this learning environment.  

    If you're struggling with law or testing average scores... find the resources to improve. Ask for help. Make time to study, at school and at home. The instructors want you to master the material they can help. Aim high. Don't settle for passing.

    If you are uncomfortable/unsure with the PT/tactical stuff, sign up for the support classes. Practice on your time off, with peers and in between classes. Try to make it second nature. Build confidence.

    If your shooting needs work... go down to the range in the mornings, or on your lunch break to dry fire. Draw from the holster during breaks. Dry fire at home over and over again.

    Most importantly... push and support your peers throughout the process. These are the people we'll have to depend on, in the streets. Everyone needs to know their sh** as much as possible before leaving. Don't leave it all to the FTO. There's no excuses.

    As recruits, if we don't work on mastering the basics now... and are simply satisfied with just "passing" (or assume we'll just learn it in the field)... we're doing ourselves, our family, and the colleagues that will depend on us, a huge disservice when we finally get out there.


    Physical strength is good and all, but knowing the law, knowing how to write well, searching throughly, identifying risks, acting quickly, shooting accurately, and effectively descalating/controlling tense situations, are even more important.
    ... at least thats what I've been told.

    I just want to say if you don't learn anything else in the academy please remember that safety and backing each other up out here is so important. You have no idea. You never know what you might prevent or make some think twice about doing something or just having the strength in numbers. Those are my coworkers and friends that were shot this week and we are going to make sure they have whatever they need to get through this. Those scumbags did not hesitate to shoot at the police on 2 separate occasions 5 days and 2 miles apart. it's very real out here and learn as much as you can and be safe.

    Lol ZzzQuil is my go to. But I got a feeling melatonin might be a good bet during the academy. Also, I was thinking of making a Discord server for the class. make it much easier for everyone to communicate and whatnot.
