I would google police academy locations in Florida. Start contacting police agencies also. Look at the forums on this site which may assist you also.

No advise here, just stopping in to wish you well and welcome you home!

 A lot of good departments and academies in the Sunshine state, just depends where you want to live and work.  Something to keep in mind however is who is going to protect you when the cr@p hits the fan whether you at fault or not for the cr@p, and also who is going to protect you from getting stabbed in the back by either your own department or the city/county you work for.  For this reason you should look for a department that is covered by a LE union I.e. the FOP or PBA.  Many if not most of the major departments in FL are covered by either the FOP or the PBA. While out on the street you need to be 100% focused on the matters at hand and not worrying about all the other cr@p that comes with the job which why it is nice to have a LE union taking care of all those other matters...
