Editor's Note:

One might call this month's Career eNews the rookie edition — we have two pieces focusing on the new guys. In a P1 First Person essay, Joseph Hood offers up some tips on his first year. In addition we polled our Facebook readers to see what advice they'd give to a graduating high school senior interested in becoming a cop.

Meanwhile, Joel Shults calls upon his 30 years of police experience as he ponders the question 'why are cops so easy to hate?' Do you agree with his assessment? Sound off in the comments.

Why are cops so easy to hate?
By Joel Shults, PoliceOne Columnist
We're a minority subject to unprovoked violence and yet prosecutions are frequently denied when we're victims of violent crime. Not infrequently we get prosecuted for merely defending ourselves. Why is blue so easy to hate?

Tips from a rookie
By Joseph Hood, PoliceOne Member
If there is one word you should carry with you not only in your first year but all the rest to come, it's humility. Stow that cocky attitude recruit. Your schooling is only just about to begin. Stay true to you
The Question

By PoliceOne Staff
We asked our Facebook fans what advice they would give to a graduating high school student who told them they wanted to become a cop. After sifting through the countless "Just don't." responses, we selected our top 10 pieces of advice.
