  • Expectations of new recruits

    Currently I am a resident of the Metro-Detroit area. I am attending Macomb Comunity College full time to obtain my degree in criminal justice. My question is what kind of expectations do fellow Officers have towards new recruits in their department?

    Thanks- Josh

            Eyes, ears, open: Mouth shut. Additionally, you have no right to an opinion. Be quick to use "Sir or Mam" as the situation applies to senior officers. If you're fortunate enough to join an agency with an FTO Program, become a "knowledge sponge" and absorb all the wisdom and training you possibly can.

                      If you want to stay alive you will pay freaking attention. If you want to make it on my shift you will only offer opinions when appropriate. That would be, when somebody asks for it. I don't mind somebody asking "why" a little later after the smoke clears.

                      You might see us picking and joking with each other. We earned the right to pick and after a lot of years and hard times together. You don't know the history, don't even try. Cops is an odd social group. It takes time to earn the right to be there. You will probably shead some blood, sweat, and a few tears beore they let you in.

                      Next to that. Do your best, work hard, you will make it.

                      Guess what. We got degrees too. About all I learned in college about criminal justice was a bunch of crap. It will take two years on the street and your dern near getting killed to shake that crap out of your head. Remember this. People commit crime because they choose too. It ain't everubody elses fault.

                      Oh...and I expect my rookies ot have fun. You may as well learn to have fun when life is sucking all around you. That is preaty much the way it is going to be. That is kinda the point of the whole mess.
