Training & Recruitment

Law Enforcement training has evolved over the years to better prepare Officers for the challenges of the present and the future, by building on the strengths of the past; and avoiding the mistakes.  Just as a Physician, a Nurse, or any other Professional Occupation require a State License; Law Enforcement Officers in Florida must meet mandatory standards to maintain certification.  The training includes, but isn't limited to: Cultural Diversity, Safe & Legal Traffic Stops, Elderly Exploitation, Juvenile Sex Offenders, Domestic Violence, and Physiological Response Dynamics. The Indian Shores Police Department both meets and exceeds the standards set forth by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. The Department is proud to have experienced State Certified Field Training Officers, to provide necessary exposure to new Recruit Police Officers. Members of the Indian Shores Police Department are provided opportunities to attend training regularly at area Law Enforcement Training Centers.
