"Training Districts" Flaw?
- Six Districts to train officers. Even in the unlikely event they graduate a class of more than 75 in the next few years (which doesn't look likely in the face of no hiring and no test on the horizon), that's like a dozen officers going to 004, 006, 008, 010, 024 and 025.
- These PPOs serve their eighteen months, rotate watches for a bit and work with their FTO's for whatever period of time. At some point they are going to get bumped by another class coming up behind them, right? If we happen to have two classes graduating within a short time frame, these six districts are going to be buried in PPOs - 20 or more recruits in a single district.
- According to Aunt Bea's latest directive, PPOs off their cycles cannot work anything but 1st and 3rd watch.
And someone trained in 024 afternoons isn't going to like being shipped to 007 midnights much. The "culture shock" alone is going to be a rude awakening and a potential safety issue.
