Twenty-five proud members of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Special Agent Training Class 33 graduated and took the oath of office in ceremonies held on Wednesday, Nov. 27 in Tallahassee.
The men and women in the class, many of whom were already law enforcement officers with years of experience, were offered 70 blocks of instruction over eight weeks involving academic and tactical training to prepare them for FDLE’s many responsibilities.
FDLE special agents are sworn officers with statewide authority to investigate and enforce Florida’s criminal laws. Special Agents assist the state’s criminal justice community by providing a variety of services including: identifying and investigating organized and multi-jurisdictional crimes; enhancing domestic security preparedness; collecting and disseminating criminal intelligence information; investigating public corruption; seizing illegally obtained assets; dismantling drug trafficking organizations; assisting in locating missing children; and providing protective services to Florida’s Governor and other dignitaries.
We congratulate the Special Agent Training Class graduates and welcome them to the FDLE family.
