Hey Alan,
A good amount of the law enforcement has served in military before. It is pretty common for law enforcement institutions (local, state, and federal) to try to actively recruit transitioning service members on military bases as they realize the military provides you with a great skill set that is required to make successful law enforcement officer. So whether it is a FBI or your local police department, joining the military beforehand will set you up for success.

The transition period will vary from what you organization you ultimately want to join. For example I had a friend who was able to start the police academy for LAPD about 2 weeks after he got out of the military and I had another friend have to wait a year and a half to go to the FBI academy because of the lengthy process involved. I hope this helps.

Hey Alan

http://www.fdle.state.fl.us/CJSTC/Officer-Requirements/How-to-Become-an-Officer.aspx has the details on the FL state requirements and local agencies may require more training.

Looks like you're required to complete a 5-6 months Florida Law Enforcement Academy certificate at various Community Colleges http://www.fdle.state.fl.us/CJSTC/Training-Resources/Training-Center-Links.aspx
