Police Recruit is a training level classification used for the 24-week Sacramento Police Academy. Police Recruits undergo a formal training program in the Police Academy where they receive basic training in police procedures, law enforcement techniques, basic laws, first aid, and physical fitness.
Upon successful completion of training and graduation from the Academy, a Police Recruit is eligible for probationary appointment to Community Service Officer (Limited-Term) or Police Officer. Successful completion of a field training program is required for both appointments. Failure to graduate from the Academy or complete field training, within the prescribed training period will be cause for termination.
