  • How long is a rookie a rookie?

    And what's the determining factor(s) that gets 'em out of being a rookie?
    M.E.

            What???? He has skills? Beating confessions out of old ladies is hardly a skill.

              I assume you're talking about a rookie LEO, not a rookie o.com member, right?

              If it's LEO, you're usually looking at about a year or so. Or once there's someone more junior on your shift. Or, of course, once you stop falling for the stupid rookie tricks.

              Any way to get out of it? Nope.

                    I'll stop being a rookie when Ateamer tells me I'm not a rookie

                    As far as seniority goes, we already have about 12 deputies with less than me. The deputy with the highest seniority for my shift has been there less than 2 years

                      I'm pretty sure it had to do with the forum.

                          When you can tell the " remember when " war stories and sound credible.

                          When your mustache has gray in it.

                          When you have leather as old as the junior man on the shift.

                            Mike........... be careful picking up your toothbrush son. You never know when that thing will go off now.

                            The standard answer is at least a year...... but I say it's when you stop acting like a rookie, which could be longer than a year.

                              Whenever we get a new officer, I consider them a rookie until I know they will perform when the **** this the fan. Once thats done, I don't really think of them as a rookie anymore.
