Trust me, the Tac officers will notice that and it will get back to your department that you're a team player. Your reputation begins very early in your career, and you want to start off on the right foot.

Lots of really good advice here, so make sure you print this stuff out and come back to it after you graduate the academy. The academy is tough, but once you get used to it you'll be fine. Start running now, you'll be doing a lot of it.
This!^^^^ We actually had a guy that dropped from #7 in the class to #20 after peer evals. There was a lot of I's and me's in his day to day ops...if you know what I mean.
