  • Out of state-checking my options.

    Hello,

    I am currently attending an academy here in Missouri and we will be Class A P.O.S.T. (police officer standard training) certified in May of 2010. My question is, what does it take for a licensed person to try and work in the state of Florida? Do you need on the job experience? Could I use my academy training and try to test into a Florida department? Or would I have to just attend an academy there. I know all the statutes would be different and there are things that would need to be learned. I know some states accept out of state academy's easier than others. Just a thought as I am trying to look at all of my options before graduation. Any feedback is useful. Thank You.

    Respectfully,

    Kevin Mataya

    Stay out. We have enough applicants.


    That said, check the FDLE website.

      Florida doesn't take POST. In order to come here without taking any academy, you have to have 2 years experience. Even with 2 years experience you'd have to take a short 2 week academy. Just with your post if you came to Florida, you'd have to do the academy again. Good luck with whatever you choose.
