Field Training Team
The field training team is made up of two sergeants and three officers. All members of the FTO team completed a 6-day FTO training program. This unit is intended to assist “new” police officers with their transition from the academic setting to the performance of general law enforcement duties. While on probationary status, newly hired Conshohocken Borough police officers must successfully complete the field training and evaluation program in order to attain patrol officer status. It is the responsibility of the FTOs to thoroughly review field-training materials with new officers. This type of one-on-one training in a real law enforcement setting sets it apart from prior academy trainings.
