Crossover Programs

Are you a current Law Enforcement or Corrections Officer looking to crossover?
The Criminal Justice Institute is certified by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to conduct authorized Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission courses, to include Crossover training opportunities for individuals currently certified in either law enforcement or corrections. These Crossover programs are generally offered once annually, or when there is a demand by students or regional agencies.
(Crossover to Law Enforcement Officers)
 This particular program consists of 585 hours of training and takes approximately 8 months to complete.
Required Before Receiving a Registration Card
  • Register for the Basic Abilities Test (BAT) and Physical Abilities Test (PAT) through the Selection Center and submit scores
  • If you have not had a polygraph and psychological test completed through their agency, you must make arrangments with the Selection Center.
  • Have fingerprinting done through the Selection Center (if not attached to an agency). 
In Addition to the above,
the following must be submitted
  • "Acknowledgement of Attendance" form filled out by your agency
  • Completed copy of IRSC's preliminary application

(Crossover to Correctional Officers)
