Field Training Officer Courses

The Field Training Program facilitates a peace officer's transition from academic setting to performing general law enforcement duties. Although an officer graduating from the police academy has received thorough instruction on basic law enforcement subjects, he or she cannot be expected to immediately assume the full responsibilities of a police officer. New officers must receive additional training in the field where they can learn from officers who have already gained a great deal of practical patrol experience.
