Rookies

CRIME & INVESTIGATION – Saturdays 04 October, 8.30pm

A new class of rookies emerges from the sanctity of the police academy and immediately enters some of the deadliest streets in America. A shortage of cops means everyone from detectives to traffic officers patrol the streets. Overflowing jails are releasing criminals early due to a shortage of guards- therefore the rookies need to be called upon. As they leave the academy, the rookies begin a 12-week street patrol, riding shotgun with a Field Training Officer (FTO). The FTOs try to teach the rookies how to survive as police officers. But like fraternity brothers hazing new pledges, the veteran cops have a full repertoire of pranks and serious lessons they will use to challenge the new recruits.
