Field Services


The Field Services Section provides assistance to agencies and criminal justice training schools to ensure compliance with Florida Statutes and Commission rules, policies, and procedures. Ten field representatives conduct inspections at the criminal justice employing agencies reviewing documentation related to officer employment/certification, instructor certification, and K-9 team certification.  At the Commission-certified training schools, the field representatives audit training courses and expenditures from the Criminal Justice Trust Fund; assist with the criminal justice training school certification process; inspect and approve Commission-certified training school facilities; and conduct inspections for instructor certification. Commission field representatives have specific regional assignments and are housed throughout the state.

Our goal is to promote professionalism among law enforcement, corrections, and correctional probation officers through a higher level of training, education, and employment standards.
