Field Training Officer – Penn State Justice & Safety Institute
October 1, 2019 @ 8:00 am - October 3, 2019 @ 5:00 pm |
The future of a police department is significantly impacted by the field training officer (FTO). The FTO is a vital member of the department, responsible for training new recruits and determining the viability of these recruits as law enforcement officers. When FTOs are properly trained, they can help make sound personnel decisions and avoid future performance and legal issues.
The Penn State Justice and Safety Institute (JASI) is pleased to partner with our co-sponsor to offer this powerful three-day program, which is designed to prepare officers for field-training responsibilities. Rather than using a previously formulated method of instruction, we teach what we believe to be the best of each method, and then allow trainees to devise their own program. This highly interactive class places an emphasis on imparting the knowledge and skills needed to properly train and mentor recruits for work as law enforcement officers.
