During the eight-week course, you will have the opportunity to learn how each division in the agency operates. Additionally, participants have an opportunity to hear from representatives of each specialized unit, such as the Bomb Squad, K-9 Unit, Narcotics Unit and the SWAT Team. Class participants also tour the Pre-Trial Detention Facility (jail), Montgomery Correctional Center (prison), and the firing range.
Classes meet at 6 p.m. on Thursdays (except on holidays). Additionally, there will be three virtual classes held on Tuesday nights during the eight-week course.
We are currently accepting applications for our 2023 classes. This course is open to Duval County residents.
