Law Enforcement Academy

To be a law enforcement 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. 

During the academy, you will learn everything that you need to know to get you started in a career as a law enforcement officer.  After successfully completing the academy, students take the State Officer Certification Examination (SOCE).  Passing the state examination qualifies the individual for employment as a law enforcement officer anywhere in the State of Florida.
