New Supervisor Field Training Program (NSFTP)by Richard Whitehead on 05/08/15
This is an area that has historically been over looked since the inception of Field Training Programs. Typically, the knowledge to be a Sergeant is inferred when the stripes are sewn on, much like the queen knighting a new Knight or is in the thread of the stripes and is supposed to soak through like a nicotine patch. As the scrutiny of our agencies is at an all-time high is it not a good time to review how we train? Especially, at the supervisory ranks?
The Post Falls ID Police Dept., which is known for staying on the cutting edge of innovation, has just adopted a “New Sergeant Field Training Program” as designed by Richard Whitehead & Associates LLC. We were proud to be asked and provide such a valuable service.
