    Not to mention your beat partners will start having conversations with you if you keep ducking paper because you’re “proactive”

    I concur with my learned friend above.
    Get into the Academy, complete it successfully, complete your field training successfully, and be professional and open to learning at all times.

    Hunting is great, but you gotta remember that you are there FOR the calls for service. The public really doesn’t care if you make a car stop and take 56 lbs of fentanyl and 9 illegal weapons and 180 million in cash. They care that you showed up shortly after they hung up with dispatch. It’s petty, but that’s a fact.

    You are getting so far ahead of yourself, it's not even funny. The officers you'll meet on FTO dread getting assigned to guys like you... and that comes AFTER the academy

    Concentrate on the subject matter presented to you each day, one day at a time. The Academy is going to be like drinking water from a fire hose as it is. You're going to have a hard time keeping up.

    Worry about making arrests when its time to start making arrests

    You will learn all that stuff in the Academy and FTO
