The law enforcement officer PSAV certificate is a limited-access program that trains you for employment as a law enforcement officer. This program takes place at the HCC Criminal Justice Institute, which operates under the auspices of the Florida Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission (CJSTC).

The 770-hour Law Enforcement Basic Recruit Training Program is for students seeking a career as a city, county or state law enforcement officer. A law enforcement officer is vested with authority to bear arms and make arrests; whose primary responsibilities are the prevention and detection of crime, and the enforcement of penal, criminal, and traffic laws.
