Jobs & Training - 57th Maine State Police Training Troop

Week 1

On Monday May 28, 2007 fourteen recruits began their journey in the Maine State Police 57th Recruit Training Troop (RTT). We learned what the Maine State Police stood for, Integrity, Fairness, Compassion, and Excellence. These core values are to be integrated into our lives not only as recruits, but as people. The troop spent a great deal of time in the classroom throughout the week. The recruits learned, the Core Principles of the Maine State Police, Domestic Violence, How to make Death Notifications, Report Writing and how to use the State Police record program. Four times through out the week, the class spent time being instructed in numerous defensive techniques. Whether it was learning how to control an uncooperative suspect or learning to defend yourself under extremely stressful and physical conditions. 57th RTT also spent time testing their bodies physically. Each day at least once, sometimes twice, we did physical training. We ran three to four miles or did as many pushups as we could.
