    That was mentioned in many discussions throughout the entire ordeal. It was a special time to be an FTO!

    I couldn't get out of the parking lot if we made a physical arrest for every arrestable violation.

    Is just over 10 years excessive for FTO? What is your agencies typical FTO length?

    Asking for a friend...

    Our phases were four weeks long. I once had 13 in a row, probably a total of two weeks in thirteen months without a trainee in my car. I finally convinced the training coordinator that I needed a break. I loved being an FTO but that stretch was ridiculous.

    Can mods change the title to “Feels like I’m struggling to get through my last 6 months to retirement”.

    I think I remember this guy before he was a cop. I think he was worried his CCW would trip up his hiring process.

    I’m struggling through FTO myself. These rookies are giving me fits.

    Well.....it would have to be a felony to keep me from getting coffee right out of the box. Or any kind of theft since I despise thieves.
