    You really can't go wrong with any of the Sheriff Offfices (Orange, Seminole, Polk, Lake, Brevard). Be careful with the smaller city agencies because a lot of them are in a hiring freeze because of that whole tax scare everyone is having.

      i would say first, pick the area in CenFL that you desire to reside, then, get info on the surrounding agencies.

      many NY'ers (former LEOs) have a problem with the poly we have down here. Just a heads up.

          Joejoe, Try to get employed by either coast so you can enjoy the benefits of living in Central florida. There is nothing but Orange groves and sugar farms in the middle of the state.
          LET IT RAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                from people that i know from NJ/NY the train of thought is different, the conditions are different, and law enforcement is done differently.
                for anything else, just research the poly.

                  Well I am originally form Vermont but currently In the US ARMY and stationed in NY. So Hopefully I wont have a problem with the Poly. I have no experience in LE, just combat arms in the Army and have been deployed to IRAQ 2 Times.

                  Thanks for all the info

                    The Orlando Police Department is looking to hire numerous officers over the next 3 years. Our pay and pension are good. We have the same problems as most other large agencies. Overall despite some frustration Im generally happy.
