In the State of Florida, a new police officer is required to undergo an extensive training course before they are eligible to take the Law Enforcement Officer Certification Examination. Once certified and employed, police officers are required to undergo continuing training in order to maintain their law enforcement certification.

The Naples Police Department firmly believes in the importance of relevant training and provides training to its personnel well above the State of Florida's mandatory minimum.
