In your first month, you will apply everything you have learnt at the Academy to real-life policing situations.
Your First Month
As a Probationary Trooper, you will be partnered with a Field Training and Assessment Officer (FTAO) for the first month. The FTAO will be your 'shadow' and guide and assist you through everyday and follow-up files. An FTAO has undertaken a specific training course and is aware of the study requirements of Probationary Troopers.
Your ongoing training will be monitored by a local Education Development Officer (EDO) who assists you with all aspects of work and study, particularly your adjustment to Terra Isles Roleplay. You can expect to be exposed to a wide range of files and situations in your first month.
Duties and Incidents
Some things you will be involved with include:
Being a member of a Police Area Command (PAC) or a Police District (PD) you will be a part of a team comprising many different roles, ranks and positions. A Police Area Command is under the control of a Police Area Commander, who holds the rank of a Superintendent. The PAC is supported by Duty Officers (Inspectors) who manage issues within the Police Area Command and Team Leaders (Sergeants) who form mobile supervisory patrols.
In addition, there are support roles that assist Troopers assigned to General Duties around the Police Area Command. These include but aren't limited to: the Traffic & Highway Patrol Command, Bicycle Squad, Area Detectives and the Tactical Operations Unit. Before pursuing specialist assignments Probationary Troopers are required to complete the Field Training and Assessment Program (FTAP).
Note: New members must complete a minimum of thirty days (30) tenure in general duties before applying for a transfer to another location or specialist assignment.
