The Supported Programs of the Florida Sheriffs Association
Law Enforcement Memorial
The Florida Sheriffs Association established a granite Memorial Wall in 2002 to honor all the heroes of sheriffs' offices killed in the line of duty. The names of those who gave their lives the prior year are added each May during a moving cermony at the FSA headquarters in Tallahassee.
Teen Driver Challenge
The Teen Driver Challenge course is offered at no cost to students through local sheriffs’ offices. Trained driving instructors teach important defensive driving techniques and provide the knowledge and hands-on experience to reduce a student’s chances of being involved in an automobile crash.
Florida Sheriffs Explorers
The Law Enforcement Explorer Program was established in the 1960s as a way to attract young motivated individuals with an interest for a career in law enforcement. The program allows young adults ages 14 to 21 to train and learn about the profession to determine if it’s the right career track for them.
Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches
The Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches was founded in 1957 and is an example of FSA’s commitment to preventing juvenile crime and delinquency by guiding youngsters to productive lives as law-abiding citizens. To date, more than 100,000 youths have been served.
Since 1993, the Florida Sheriffs Association has offered a number of college scholarships to eligible dependent children of full-time sheriff's office employees. To be eligible, the dependent's career objective and degree should be focused on law enforcement, law, corrections, or criminal justice.
Where It's Needed Most
