Use of the Officer Trust Fund

Each of the sixteen (16) training regions in the state has a Regional Training Council comprised of agency and training center directors that act as an extension of the Commission in the planning, programming, and budgeting for expenditures of monies allocated for training from the trust fund.

Section 943.25(5), F.S., authorizes that training or room and board costs may not be assessed against any officer or employing agency for any Commission-approved Advanced or Specialized Training Courses that are attended and funded from the trust fund.
