Remember your first day at your new job? Now imagine being a police officer. ROOKIES, shot on location in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana and Tampa, Florida, puts viewers in the squad car as each rookie heads out on patrol for the first time. Each week viewers will join the journey as rookies learn how to patrol the tough city streets with their field training officer (FTO). These veteran cops teach the rookies how to survive. Some of these rookies will have what it takes - and others will be asking themselves if they can take the heat in one of the toughest jobs in America. Written by
I'm not much for reality shows , but this one is pretty good. It has a mixture of seriousness, comedy and heartache.
The story particularly where the young officer Norris was killed was shocking and unexpected. Interesting the way they train these officers, the drama of each call, and how they handle each situation. I also find it interesting the way each rookie is critiqued by the FTO on the way they handle each situation. You almost try and figure out what the rookie is doing wrong before the training officer points it out.
If you are looking for a different take and reality series and tired of watching the 5 minute scenarios of the stale Cops (Bad Boys,Bad Boys what you gonna do)give this series a look. You will enjoy it.
Look forward to hopefully a long running series from different precincts.
