  • Common rookie mistake?

    What are the most common rookie mistakes you have seen the rookies fresh out of the academy commit while on duty during you career as a LEO????

    as I will be a Rookie next year a.k.a. F.N.G so I figure I try to see what are the most common mistakes that rookies commit, because I'm pretty sure I will make a few mistakes as a Rookie too.

    Thank you in advance for all useful comments.

        Failure to engage.
        Fear of going hands-on
        Failure to search
        Lack of respect for one's senior peers.

          That was a great one-liner, thanks Timmy!

            The desire to drive fast to a call. For the most part, arriving an additional 10 or 15 minutes later to a call will not effect the outcome of that call. Watch out for yourself and arrive there safely.

              Thinking that you know EVERYTHING...you went to an academy...you don't know squat...correction: You know just enough to get yourself hurt.

              LISTEN to what the more experienced Officers tell you.

              I don't agree with your opinion, but I respect its straightforwardness in terms of wrongness.

                Don't touch your FTO's radio.

                  Trusting the general public too much. I always tell the guys that I am training, "Everybody lies."

                    Running your mouth before you've earned the right. Rookies need to be seen, not heard.

                      DRIVING!!!
                      Talking on the radio too much
                      Lack of experience in dealing with the professional liars masquerading as the law abiding citizens of the republic

                      These problems get solved within a couple of weeks

                        Thinking that since they went to the academy they know how to do EVERYTHING, and that its right.

                          Rather than concentrating on mistakes, perhaps you'll indulge a Limey FTO. The three rules I teach:

                          1. Always know where you are.
                          2. Don't be afraid to ask.
                          3. Remember it's a contact sport.
                          I'm a little bit waayy, a little bit wooah, a little bit woosh, I'm a geezer.

                              Wow......in the fours years that I've been employed in the LE career field, you just boiled it down to 3 simple things.....for and I wish i had thought of this long before actually began in it.
                              You have the right to remain silent, but apparently you lack the skill to exercise that right.
