These three officers will now complete a field-training program with an assigned training officer at the Thibodaux Police Department.This is a seventeen-week course in which the new officers will received instruction and will be observed in the performance of duties by a seasoned Thibodaux Police Officer.The new officers will receive a daily performance evaluation where high standards will have to be met.Following the completion of these seventeen weeks of field training, an overall evaluation will be given and if the officer passes successfully, he will be released to regular patrol duties.Either the shift sergeant or the shift commanders will still scrutinize his work performance daily for one year.
