Police Recruit Training and Field Training Officer Program
The Training Bureau prepares newly sworn officers for academy training. The Administrative Sergeant liaisons with the training academies to ensure compliance with the Police Training Commission rules and standards.
At the completion of recruit training, new officers are assigned a Field Training Officer for the duration of their working test period. The Administrative Sergeant oversees the delivery of field training through the Department's Field Training Officers. New officers are expected to meet all of the performance objectives of the program.
