Graduates of Sheriff’s Training Academy’s First Law Enforcement Class Today


The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is proud to announce the graduation of Law Enforcement Class 22-02, the first to complete the Sheriff’s Training Academy.

In November 2021, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office received full approval from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission (CJSTC) to become a training center certified by the state by holding Type A certification. This enables HCSO to offer advanced and specialized courses and to operate its own law enforcement and detention academies at the Sheriff’s Office, one of the few of the country to do so.

“Each group of graduates is special and unique, and that remains the same for the 22-02 law enforcement class,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “We are proud to show what this group of law enforcement cadets will bring to our community after spending months learning from the HCSO instructors who have worked diligently to make the Sheriff’s Training Academy a success from the start. It really takes a whole village.”

31 cadets will be deputized at a ceremony today.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office is currently recruiting for law enforcement, detention, and non-sworn (civilian) positions. To learn more about current openings or to apply for a position with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, please visit our website at
