1. What experiences are you having now at your job or in classes that have made you successful? With my new position at the Carbondale Police Department, I have had a lot of experiences that are helping me be successful. I am receiving onsite training so when I graduate I will already know what it takes to be an officer and I will already know a lot of information so my FTO training will go a lot smoother.
2. What has your training program helped you achieve (either at school or work)? My training program has helped me with learning the districts of Carbondale, a lot of the streets that I will need to remember, and the paperwork side of things.
3. What positive changes have resulted from your apprenticeship so far? Some of the positive changes that have helped me so far are the pay, my schooling being paid for, and the training that I’m receiving.
4. Provide details of your career or new job plans. Once I graduate I plan on going to the academy to being a sworn-in officer. Once I complete that and I have put at least 3 years into that I would eventually like to move up to investigations.
