Sheriff's Department & You!

My opinion is that the in-game academy is a necessary process that every recruit should go through. Mainly under a group environment with other recruits and Training Bureau personnel.

 

Settling in is a very important step into joining the Sheriff's Department. I'm thinking that it's way better to make a recruit feel comfortable and get a better grasp of their actions on the field by doing Custody and Patrol school roleplay, instead of removing the whole academy and throw them on the street where they have to do Field Training Patrols with FTOs (Field Training Officers) that take it seriously and don't allow many mistakes, ultimately leading to a bad interaction with the trainee and leaving them anxious and scared of the future DORs (Daily Observational Patrol).

 

Leaving some room for recruits to experience some fun roleplay during the classes and during custody would settle them the best and make a prime deputy out of them.

 

Some find the academy classes where you go over the manuals lenghty and boring, but contrary to that, the Training Bureau gets valuable information. Example would be whether the recruit receives information well, how they behave, their roleplay quality and engagement. That being said, stay active even during classes, the /me's and chats are being tracked and you will be graded internally and eventually booted out if you don't meet the requirements.

 

We've had the academies and the Training Bureau for the longest time and it's one of the key aspects in our faction. I wouldn't never consider a removal.

What if somebody has a busy schedule during the academic hours. People got jobs, some paying their own bills. Not to mention, people take extra shifts to keep their jobs. This Covid shit ain't made it easy on people keeping jobs, and some people wish to RP a deputy. They could pull their hours...after their work hours.

 

Question here is...will there be private academies for people who couldn't make it into the academy date. Instead of just "Sucks to be you, you should of joined us decade ago". Its easy to say it when your part of a faction for numerous years, what about new people...what's gonna be the compromise here. 

 

And umm...if you got 20 people in academic division, private academies for certain individuals shouldn't be a problem. And that's coming from an experience, I used to train multiple people...2-3 hour sessions with each one...but that depends on a person, if he or she is willing to give a damn about simple life circumstance.

 

 

I'm supportive with the IG academy, show and tell...its just a question of compromise. You cant expect people ditch their work for academy, even so..those people would be active after their work hours. What's the strategy for that? Keep in mind, we ain't 16 anymore. A lot of people here are over 25 and got everyday shit. What's the flexible act here.

I have work just about every day of the week and I’ve been getting stuck with 16 hour shifts lately, but that doesn’t really stop me. The academies are typically scheduled on days that people don’t have real life commitments that they have to tend to. The academy instructors have real life commitments like any other person here, so I personally don’t think scheduling is going to be a problem. And as far as I’m aware, private academies have always been a thing for people that couldn’t attend the scheduled sessions.

Read my reply, I've mentioned that private academies can be held for people that can't make the pre-set dates.

I believe that academies should be NPC'd and not actually be given IC'ly, but rather have an exam that must be completed when you request this and then you'll have field trainings.

The reason why LEO factions have academies is the same reason we don't expect you to know the manual 100% at the start. You learn everything from purely roleplaying with members, it's the same thing you do on the academy, yes you have to read and understand what the instructors are saying in case you need to talk, but other than that most of it is basic roleplay.
