Hello, my name is Andrew and I am a new officer in my department. I have been with them for less than a year and am still in Field Training. I had a rougher time last phase, faster/tougher part of town, than my first phase, slower/safer. Its a little frustrating but i under stand there is a learning curve. Im also not a big fan of my field training program as a whole, nor do I care for the Sergeant that is in charge of the FTO program. The department seems to be very gossipy, i have heard rumors about me that I have no idea where or why they came about. My frustration is rising and I am occasionally not sure that this is the right job/department for me. Being new to the position, I was wondering if others have had this experience and how they dealt with it.
