  • Getting Hired in Florida

    In the state of Florida, the laws only require one to be 19 in order to become certifiable. That being said I plan to start working at my local sheriffs dept at 19. Im just worried that I will not be taken seriously or given a equal opportunity as some other applicants who may be older. I have been a police explorer with the agency for five years. Attaching to the back of my application will be a letter of recommendation from a sitting county judge, a captain from the agency and two sgts from the agency. In my references I have the same captain and sgts plus two addition sgts who i did not ask for a letter.

    Does anyone think my age will be a huge turn off for the agency and them not seriously consider me for sworn LEO employment?

    Everyone has to start somewhere! You are young and have a lot to learn about everything! So you might know every law in the books but my advice is keep your mouth shut and take it all in! I would like to say it not always about who you know when it comes to getting hired, but most people in LE know that's not the case some times. I worked for a dept where I "knew" higher ups and was often accused of only getting the job because of that.

        Who knows buddy... Even though the age is 19, I think it's too young to make some decisions. Even at 21, I have doubts as to most officers making a good and smart decision.

        Good luck!
