  • Florida Parole Officer Question

    Do you have to go to a community college to be a parole officer in Florida? Is it an armed position? I was wondering what kind of job it is in Florida. I am considering a move and any information would be appreciated.[/FONT]

    I also am wondering about the same position in Texas. I don't have any previous law enforcement experience. Is this a good first step?

    Can someone enlighten us on what the job entails day to day....please.

    Thanks

      The position is actually called Correctional Probation Officer (CPO). Yes, it is and armed position, and yes, most Community Colleges that offer LE academies conduct a CPO academy.

      The position is overseen by the Florida Department of Corrections. You can check myflorida.com for job listings.

      I have been on several sweeps with CPO's for carrer offenders and sexual offenders. Too many hats to wear for me though. Hope this helps.
