Florida Police Academies

Most police academies in Florida are pay-your-own-way academies, meaning you are responsible for paying your tuition and becoming certified as a police officer before any police department or sheriff’s office will hire you. Most of the academies are offered through a local community college. Upon successful completion of the academy recruits will receive college credit hours from the school.
