Field Training Program
The Minneapolis Police Field Training Program is one of the longest Field Training Programs in North America. The program is five months long and is based on a proven, nationally recognized field training model, the San Jose Model.
The goals of our Field Training Program are to:
- Recruit, select, and retain experienced officers of the highest caliber to serve as Field Training Officers (FTOs) and Field Training Sergeants (FTSs), and
- Phase recruits into the Minneapolis Police Department through use of training and practical experience in the field.
