Hey girl I'm a rookie too! Graduated from Police Academy in December 2007 and immediately got hired at this Sheriff's Office. I've been on the job 2 years next month. We work in a rural area so I don't have street experience, per se, but it's definitely exiciting! I work the 4-midnight shift in the summer and things can get quite interesting in the woods with drunks and "pot parties" LOL :) take care and stay safe sis
Yes, even tho is now 27 1/2 yrs ago, I remember how tough it was being the "rookie" on the squad. Hopefully your coworkers will give you the chance to show them you know your stuff. Common sense goes a long way and always doing the "right" thing, whether anyone is watching.
Thanks for the offer of friendship! Hey, we all had to start someplace.. so now it is your time in the bucket!!! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and wish you only the best for the New Year! From your sister in blue (aka tan) in CA.
