Found this information about Andrew Zinke, former Keith Nygren top deputy Keith Nygren:
These three officers have received four weeks (160 hours) of training to acclimate them to Springfield and the Springfield Police Department. Upon graduation, they will be assigned to an experienced field-training officer (FTO) for six weeks of on-the-job training. Once they complete the FTO program, these officers will be assigned to the SPD’s Uniform Operations Bureau.

Springfield is a city on the Interstate paralleling old Route 66.
It has a zoo with the best giraffe exhibit I have ever visited. One can climb to a giraffe’s height, buy some food and feed them.
Really a child pleaser.
