Officer Hoffman started with the Department on July 11, 2016. Andrew lives in the McFarland area and worked for the Fitchburg Fire Department and volunteered with the McFarland Fire Department as well. Officer Hoffman decided to pursue a career in law enforcement
and completed the police academy May 2016 at the top of his class.
Officer Hoffman will be going through the Departments Field Training and Evaluation Program. For three months he will train with a veteran Field Training Officer (FTO). The FTO will continue to train Officer Hoffman and evaluate him on a daily, actually, on each task he does during his shift. Officer Hoffman will work all three shifts and eventually move into “shadow phase”. At this point, the training is over and Officer Hoffman will be evaluated for two weeks. At that point he will be eligible for “solo patrol”.
If you happen to see Officer Hoffman around please welcome him to our family!
