Correctional Officer Recruit Training
Volusia County and Flagler County have three correctional facilities. The Volusia County Division of Corrections and the Tomoka Correctional Institution are located west of Daytona Beach, and the Flagler County Sheriff's Office correctional facility is located in Bunnell.
To be a correctional officer in the State of Florida, you first must complete a Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) academy, presented by one of the Regional Training Centers in Florida. The School of Emergency Services is an FDLE Certified Training Center.
After successfully completing the academy, students take the State Officer Certification Examination (SOCE). Passing the state examination qualifies the individual for employment as a correctional officer anywhere in the State of Florida.
