The Mesa Police Department, in keeping with community expectations for professional police service, has established the Field Training Officer Program. The mission of the Mesa Police Department Field Training Officer Program is to prepare Officers in Training (OITs) to perform the essential duties of a police officer and to enhance the professionalism of patrol divisions through continuous quality improvement.
The Mesa Police Department Field Officer Program (FTO) currently consists of one full-time Administrative Sergeant, one full-time Administrative Officer, Patrol FTO's and FTO's in various other sworn specialty departments. The Administrative FTO also assists with the Field Training Programs offered to Detention Officers, Dispatchers/911 Operators, Crime Scene Specialists, Civilian Investigators and department Volunteers.
