Volusia County, FL – The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office is offering full sponsorships for economically disadvantaged residents who are interested in pursuing a law enforcement career.
VCSO’s Deputy Sponsorship Program has been in effect for more than a decade, and selected applicants get full sponsorship for all costs to attend Daytona State College’s Basic Law Enforcement Officer Academy. On top of that, they’ll be employed at the Sheriff’s Office as a Special Worker and make $10 an hour, working 40 hours a week while enrolled in the academy.
Once certification is earned, they’re offered a position as a Reserve Deputy where they can work into full time status. And according to Public Information Officer Gary Davidson, “everybody who’s selected and goes through the program and successfully completes it… they all are offered a position here.”
