    And before you get to giddy over those domestics, consider that everyone of them involves at least one party, maybe two or more getting hurt, often some child's world is falling apart before their eyes.

    Every wreck you respond to represents some unwanted trauma in the life of a fellow citizen.

    Emjoy the job when you can, but never let people think you find humor or enjoyment in their grief.

    Congrats.

"Where is he?" Good Luck!


      My FTO was terrible about this on midnight shift in the neighborhoods.. made me get out and walk til I found out where I was... luckily the roads arent too long!

          I came to work, the Sgt said, Car 32 is yours don't wreck it, see ya in 10 hours. I don't remember anything else about that day.
          Almost a x2. My FTO consisted of riding with the day officer for the 12 hour shift, filling out the short "FTO book," and I'm done. We have 4 full time officers, including Chief, and 18 part time guys, most of whom have other full time jobs, and this is VERY part time.
          Most people fail because they trade what they want MOST, for what they want at the MOMENT.

          Is it any surprise that cops don't trust anyone?

            Thanks for post OP, and congrats. I'm half way through my 20 week FTO program. Reading posts like yours helps me to remember what it's all about. Can't wait to make my own "first day solo" post on 2/25/10.
            Did you ever notice that incorrectly is only spelled correctly when it's spelled incorrectly?

                    It was a great day! As its already been stated...just the pleasure of going on your schedule instead of your FTO's was the biggest relief. I wrote a couple citations, warnings..and rolled up on 1 wreck. Quiet evening, but fun!
