Correctional Probation Officer Crossover to Florida CMS Law Enforcement Basic Recruit Training Program―Technical Certificate

Probation officers may desire to transition into a career in law enforcement or earn dual certifications. Law enforcement officers uphold the laws of their country and those of the jurisdiction in which they work. Officers may work for a local police department, a county sheriff’s office or at federal organizations. Patrol officers have a very hands-on position and interact regularly with the public. They respond to crime and incident calls, patrol traffic, investigate and maintain order. These officers are also most likely to write citations and apprehend criminals.

Law enforcement officers must be able to communicate clearly, calm a distraught victim, adapt to unexpected situations and maintain a level head at all times. They will have integrity and be honest, ethical and compassionate.


The purpose of this program is to train students who want a dual certification in law enforcement and correctional probation.


This program can be completed in less than one year if students attend classes on a full-time basis.


This program can be completed on the East Campus in Dade City.
