  • Florida Agencies?

    Anyone know what Florida agencies, if any, sponsor you through the academy? What are the best academies in Hillsborough, Pasco, Hernando counties? Thanks for any input.

    hernando and pasco.....yr gonna pay for your own academy....


    probably from west palm south....they pay for the academy

        The only Agency in the Tampa Tri county area that I know of that will sponsor is Hillsborough County and they require an associates or at least 60 credit hours Pinellas was sponsoring but only for a corrections academy.
        I've got friends in low places

          OPD(Orlando Police Department) will pay you to go through the academy. The pay is one of the highest in the state, and their accedited also.

              Also look into Osceola Co. Sheriff's, they get paid and treated very well.

                          Hills County Sheriff Office twice a year offers an "integrity scholarship" program. Usually about 30 or 40 slots per class. Application process includes background interview, polygraph, psychological, PAT, etc.. Its a very good deal but tough since hundreds apply per class. Check out their website and scroll down to where it says "sponsored academy" for more details...
