  1. I recently graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice and I am interested in the Broward Community College Police Academy, what is the next step besides taking the T.A.B.E. exam?

  2. Currently seeking a career in LE. While attending college for criminal justice

  3. I am currently attending FSU pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in criminal justice. I am currently enrolled in their distance learning program, which frees me up to go to the academy. What are the necessary steps to take to become a police officer? Is it possible to get sponsored by any departments at this present time? If so, which one(s)?

    • First we have to define sponsoring. Some academies consider it being hired and paid to be in an academy. Some academies expect you to have a relationship with a police department but not necessarily be hired (Broward used to be like this). You can contact the BCC Institute of Public Safety to see which departments sponsor or you can start contact the departments individually.

      Let us know what you find out.
