The summer academy will run Monday through Thursday from 6 to 10 p.m., and Saturdays 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Application deadline is April 7, 2014. The next daytime Law Enforcement Academy program will be offered in the fall term, starting August 18, 2014. Application deadline is June 23, 2014.
The law enforcement programs prepare cadets for work in the field as certified police officers and are based on 770 hours of training; the curriculum is prescribed by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission (CJSTC) in accordance with Florida Statutes.
