        HCSO is a great agency but I can't give an un bias opinion of them since i work there. TPD is another great agency. I think FHP has some great cops but under staffed. I'm not sure on the other ones.

          Palm Beach Sheriff - Excellent agency
          West Palm Beach PD - Excellent agency

          Don't know about the others, I live in Palm Beach County so I can only tell you about those.

            Sanford is a crap town. Department runs call to call.

            Winter Park. Great department. IMO best in Orange county, 3rd in pay.

            Maitland. Good department (do a search of the old threads or member Mait128) borders Eatonville so they do generally assist them. Do alot off traffic of I-4.

            Altamonte. Good mix. They generate alot of calls because of 436 running through it and the many shopping centers it has.

            Seminole SO, good agency but losing alot of jurisdiction to city agencies because of annexation.

            Orange SO.. Eh.. So-so in my book. They have the rule of 4 (4yr degree, 4 yrs military or 4 yrs as a cop).

            All the agencies require you to have your FL certification with the exception of OCSO which will send you if your not certified.

              I agree. I'm also in Palm Beach County and have heard lots of good things about both agencies. More so W.P.B.D. than the Sheriffs office I think. Either way, they're both well established agencies.

                Sanford...good if you want lots of experience with the ghetto life
                Winter Park....good if you want a bedroom community, old people, and college kids.
                Maitland....Speed trap, they're good at 'em.
                Altamonte....Same traffice as Maitland. I wouldn't hire with them except as a last resort, I'd rather go Sanford or even Oviedo. To many politics, F'heads, and egos.
                Seminole SO....good group. The Sheriff backs his people more than most places I've seen.

                IMO:

                Winter Springs is one of the best, along with Lake Mary.

                Longwood and Altamonte are the worst.

                  Where are you a cop in seminole? I grew up in the casselberry/winter park area, and went to high school at Lake Howell.

                          Winter Park
                          Oviedo
                          Chuluota areas

                          OF: Disagreements are ok. I'm soured on AS due to personal run-in's while working with their people (specially the motor and marine units).

                          Outside of the County, my only other real favorites would be Winter Springs followed by Lake Mary.

                            Brevard County Sheriff's Dept. (BCSO) = Great agency
                            - He took an aggressive stance with clenched fists. I then issued a short burst of my chemical agent.

                              Vanatru..Intresting what you stated about Longwood. I was going thru the process with them when I took my current job. Ive always heard decent things about them. Winter Springs, Ive heard ok things but they are not on the state retirement. Lake Mary, great department... but I dont know if I want to work with a Beary (sorry but the sheriff of OC turned me to that name).

                              Oviedo.. just alittle too much traffic for me.. and I used to work for a department that did tons of traffic.
