GUIDE FOR NEW CADETS
You're in a new uniform. You're excited. You're nervous.
You're ready to take on the Sicilian crime world and the Latin
American drug traffikers and come out unscathed.
You're a cop.
Before you start your first day on the job, there are
some things you should know about the road you've chosen.
Someone once said that being a cop is ninety-five percent
boredom. Routine is the foundation of police work - routine that
can include anything from sitting under a bridge with a radar
gun in your hand for sixteen hours to making a midnight trip to
the emergency room with half a kid in the back of your car. lt
may not seem glamorous to rookies like you, but men who have
been in the force know that "a cop's gotta do what a cop's gotta
What's the other five percent of being a cop? Try
plunging down the steepest roller-coaster you can imagine at
about a hundred and fifty miles per hour. At night. Except,
there's nobody at the controls down below. You'ye got the
controls. There's a lot of screaming people on the ride behind
you, and you're the one steering. Now, the brakes go....
I know what you're thinking. You're thinking that
ninety-five and five sound like pretty good percentages. You're
thinking that you could manage being lucky five percent of the
time. Trouble is, that's an average. On certain days, for
certain cops, things can get MUCH worse.
But, that's why you joined, isn't it? The force needs
you. Lytton needs you. And you can steer real good.
So what are you waiting for? Go out and DO IT.
The next page is for "rookies" only. Experienced officers

their mission without undue assistance from headquarters.
