We are currently processing applicants for the upcoming classes.

For those candidates who are already Florida Certified Law Enforcement Officers with at least 1 year of sworn experience, we anticipate hosting the Transitional Recruit Class (TRC) with each basic recruit class (call local recruiter for dates). If you are currently a Florida Certified Law Enforcement Officer, apply now to become a member of a future TRC class!

Please remember, our hiring process will take anywhere from 6 to 8 months, so if you are considering a career with the Florida Highway Patrol, the sooner you apply, the greater chance you’ll have to become a member of the next Basic Recruit Class (BRC) or the next TRC! Don’t wait until it’s too late!  Apply Now !

Please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page or contact the Recruitment Officer if you have more questions about how to become a member of a future BRC.
