Police Officer Positions
You must hold a current law enforcement certificate in the State of Florida, and meet the minimum requirements identified in Florida State Statute 943.13 to be hired as a police officer at the Port Orange Police Department. If you have never attended a law enforcement academy in any state, you must complete such an academy and pass the state certification exam.
The closest academy is located at the Daytona Beach State College Criminal Justice Training Center. If you are a certified law enforcement officer in another state or the military police, you may be eligible to transfer your certification to Florida.
To determine eligibility, you must complete an equivalency of training assessment. The nearest assessment center is the Police Testing Center at Brevard Community College. Provided the equivalency of training is approved, you can complete the "mini-academy" courses at either the Brevard or Daytona Beach academies. You are then eligible to challenge the state certification exam.
Applications will be considered from individuals who either already hold a current law enforcement certificate in Florida, or are currently enrolled in a basic recruit academy or equivalency of training program. Tattoo Policy states that no personnel will be permitted to have tattoos on the head, neck, face, or hands, and those areas which encompass the majority of the surface area between the natural fold of the elbow and the wrist.
