Rookies ride with a Field Training Officer (FTO) until the FTO considers the rookie ready to work solo. I broke in two rookies as an FTO; one made it and one didn't. It was enjoyable teaching the former the ropes and an exercise in frustration with the latter, who was eventually given to another FTO not nearly as patient as I and he soon resigned and went to work for a small town department. He didn't last long there, either. He simply didn't have what it takes to be a cop. No FTO wants to cut somebody loose who will soon be asked, "Who the hell broke you in?"
