  • Is My Florida Certification Good Without Any Experience?

    Hey guys,


    Greetings from the great state of Florida. I was wondering if my LEO Certification is accepted up there even though I don't have experience. I graduated from my Law Enforcement academy not too long ago and I've been told about an amazing opportunity that may or may not happen for me with a good agency up there. I was just wondering if I would have to go through the academy all over again. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys and stay safe out there!!!
    Law Enforcement is a career like none other. You face challenges everyday and you get rewarded in the sametime. Thats why LE work is the best career an individual can ever choose. - Me

        Part 1 Minimum eligibility requirements

        Candidates certified and employed as municipal police officers in states other than Pennsylvania are eligible for certification as police officers in Pennsylvania after being hired by a municipal police agency. Former out of state police officers are required to provide written evidence of the following.

        Completion of a basic police academy course comparable to the basic training prescribed under Pennsylvania law, 53 P.S., P.L. 359, no. 120.
        Compliance with certification standards determined by the Peace Officers' Standards and Training Commission for the state where trained and full time employment as a police officer in the state where trained and certified.

          Short answer no; longer answer, maybe...

          I think you will find that most if not all states are going to require that you actually were a certified employed officer in the state you received your certification. Alabama has some additional requirements, there is a point system that you have to meet to be accepted for lateral transfer. If there are enough points then you would be eligible for a two week orientation/refresher course at an approved academy.

              The answer is a No. I just called and they said that I would have had to work at least ONE day as a full time LEO for my certification to at least count. So, I guess I'm out lol.
