On April 1 last year, Gov. Ron DeSantis signed HB 3 into law, which included a wide range of
law enforcement initiatives, including incentives to encourage both out-of-state residents and Floridians to join state and local law enforcement agencies. The recruitment program includes signing bonuses, costs covered for training programs and relocation, pay raises and $1,000 bonuses. It also created a Law Enforcement Academy Scholarship Program for children of law enforcement officers and adoption benefits.
