The mission of the Criminal Justice Academy is to train Law Enforcement and Correctional Officers in accordance with the rules, regulations, and curriculum of the Florida Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission; to teach in a disciplined and dynamic training environment; and to deliver the curriculum through an innovative, experienced, enthusiastic, respected, and well supported instructional staff.

Philosophy

A disciplined learning environment is required in order to better simulate the demeanor necessary to be effective on the job.
