The Correctional Officer Crossover to Law Enforcement Basic Recruit Training is designed to prepare students who are currently certified in the Corrections discipline to laterally move to the Law Enforcement discipline. Practical skills and simulated activities complement the classroom instruction. This minimum standards program is regulated by Florida statutes and is a highly structured and disciplined program. Upon successful completion of the Basic Training Program, a student is eligible to take the Florida Department of Law Enforcement State Officer Certification exam for Law Enforcement. Upon achieving a passing score on the exam, the student, if not already hired, will be eligible to seek employment with a state of Florida Law Enforcement agency.
