  • While in the Academy......

    I was wondering if anyone knows of any departments that are hiring people that are currently in the Academy? Any information would be very helpful. Thank you.

      Not necessarily, many agencies will allow you to start the process while in the academy. I don't know how agencies work up in the panhandle. But down here Pasco, Orange County, Gainesville, Polk, Tampa, and a few others have allowed you to process for certified spots while your in the academy.

        I've seen quite a few agencies that state "Currently certified or currently attending a law enforcement academy" as a requirement.

          I've seen the following verbiage on a few differing applications in NE Florida, "Certified in the State of Florida as a Police Officer or Certified in another state or currently enrolled in a Florida Police academy ½ through with passing grades"

                  www.escambiaso.com is the web site for the Escambia County Sheriff's Office, which is way over in the panhandle. You can check out the postings for employment there. And yes, I do believe the agency is currently hiring because they received a grant for 20 or so officers from the Obama stimulus package.

                      I am actually closer then that, because I live in Santa Rosa County which is the county right next to Escambia. I was looking into them, but still not sure. I am just trying to keep my options open. Thank you to everyone for your help.

                        "either you are certified or not...that's basically the way you will be dealt with until passing the exam...." is incorrect. Several if not most agencies will process you as certified if you are already attending an academy. I heard of several people that tried getting hired as a sponsorship and were turned down, then went to the academy self-sponsored, called the agency, and they accepted the updated application as certified. Some agencies may even hire you while you are still in the academy.
