[video] Rookies - The Shootout

"And you thought your first day on the job was tough . . . see former bar managers, high school teachers, and store clerks leave their old careers behind to tackle one of the toughest jobs in America. Rookies> follows new officers from the moment they graduate the police academy to their first days patrolling the streets. For three months these fresh-faced cadets will be riding shotgun with a Field Training Officer (FTO) who will try to teach the rookies how to survive out in the field. But like fraternity brothers hazing new pledges, the veteran cops have a full repertoire of pranks and serious lessons they will use to challenge and teach the new recruits. Some will prove to their field training officers — and themselves — that they have what it takes to be a member of the police force. Others won't be able to take the heat." -- iTunes Store

Episode Summary
Rookie Mark Monson has trouble taking orders from his female FTO Denise Liccardi. He's over-eager and makes basic mistakes again and again. Each rookie is evaluated by their sergeant before riding solo and Mark needs to get it together fast, or risk saying goodbye to his childhood dream of being a police officer.

Henry Conravey is a Louisiana native who served his country as a Marine in Iraq. Having seen combat, Conravey has an edge over the other rookies. But when Henry and his FTO Todd Rivere respond to a "shots fired" call in a quiet neighborhood, Henry's overconfidence could actually hurt him.
