Product Description

Remember your first day at your new job? Now imagine it as a police officer. ROOKIES, a new unscripted series from A&E, puts viewers in the squad car as each new graduate heads out on patrol for the first time.

Shot on location in Louisiana's Jefferson Parish and Tampa, Florida, ROOKIES reveals an aspect of police work you don't usually see - real officers, fresh out of the police academy, learning the ropes during a 12-week street patrol. Each week viewers will go along for the ride as field training officers coach the rookies on what it takes to survive the situations they'll encounter on tough city streets. These veteran cops will impart experience and skills that can make the difference between life and death.

Some of the rookies will have what it takes - and others will be asking themselves if they can take the heat in one of the most challenging jobs in America.

Format: DVD
Okay, how am I reviewing this DVD before its release date?

To be frank, I purchased this two disc set directly from A&E Home Video Store at a higher price about a month ago and found it to be one of the most watchable, entertaining, and fascinating looks into the true crime
genre that A&E and Discovery have been producing over the past twenty years.

You can feel the frustration, the sense of impending danger, the disappointments, and the heartfelt emotions of these young American rookie police officers as they are individually put through the paces of a patrol officer by their "FTO's" [field training officers].

You will find yourself laughing, cringing, and even questioning your own sensibilities as to how YOU would handle some of these everyday situations that face the everyday street cop on the beat.

Between "Brooklyn Homicide North", the newly released "Crime 360" and now this series, "The Rookies", these television DVD's will be long remembered as the Golden Era of True Crime documentary entertainment.

I adored this show. I enjoy a lot of cop shows but this may be my favorite. It's hard not to feel sorry for the new guys and girls who have entered this completely different world of policing and who have plenty of awkward moments. The end of every episode has a little "zinger" that gets you every time. It was a superb season and I only hope that they will make more.

I purchased this DVD for a high school class that I'm teaching which focuses on Public Safety. "Rookies" is a realistic account of what it must be like to put on that duty belt and uniform for the first time, and get in a patrol car. The insight provided by the rookies being followed in Tampa, FL and Jefferson Parish, LA are candid, frank, and eye-opening. The training that's discussed is helpful for anyone who knows an officer, and would like to get an idea about what new officers have to experience. Great show.

Indispensable viewing for anybody considering a career in law enforcement. The program gives you an inside look at rookie officers as they learn the ropes of this dangerous yet rewarding occupation. Each episode moves along at an excellent pace, and maintains viewer interest throughout.

Fantastic show that really shows you the FTO process inside and out. Also the dvds have some good special features with behind-the-scenes stuff and some pranks the officers played on each other. If only this show ran for more than one season.

Saw it on Netflix and had to have it! It is very interesting to watch these rookies try and hack it!
