Field Training Officer
The Field Training Officer program is where new officers who have graduated the SC Criminal Justice Academy will continue their training. The FTO program is 16 weeks, in which the new officer will spend time with different FTOs who will teach them the policies and procedures of the Rock Hill Police Department as well as hone their skills in being an officer. Once the trainee has successfully completed the FTO program they will be assigned to a patrol team.
The FTO program is managed by the Training Sergeant.
