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.
