After academy graduation, San Bernardino PD officers enter a 21-week field training program. In today's episode, Michele talks to Lieutenant Nick Oldendorf about the field training program at San Bernardino PD. He's sharing information about the field training program and what's involved in it. How is the program structured? What's expected of new officers in the program? What are the responsibilities of the officers who train them and what kind of effort goes into turning trainee officers into solo beat officers? These questions and more are answered in this episode.
