Department of Florida

From the Chairman

Bob Brewster

April 2020 – Our Florida Highway Patrol/American Legion Cadet Program is now accepting cadets for this year’s program. The cadets really enjoy this program, and I know this because we have not received a single complaint from any one of them or their families. Now is the time for the Posts to get their cadets’ paperwork in, including a $350.00 check per cadet. Make the checks out to the Department of Florida, not to me. All necessary paperwork that must be completed can be obtained from the Department of Florida’s website.

As you should know, all this paperwork is needed by The American Legion and by the Florida Highway Patrol Academy. We have our counselors in place again this year with 2 males and 1 female counselor. Please do not wait working on this program. Space is limited, so please get your cadets entered as soon as possible. We have a little flexibility, but not a lot. I have met with the Florida Highway Patrol Major in her office, and she is totally committed to this program. She has made a couple personnel changes to make this program more efficient.
