The Office of Agricultural Law Enforcement's Administrative Services provides organizational support to the sworn and civilian personnel of AgLaw, by delivering
the following core functions vital to the daily operations of Agricultural Law Enforcement:
- Accounts Payable
- Special Programs
- Information Technology
- Honor Guard
Personnel oversees the advertisement of all open positions, sworn and non-sworn, as well as the interview, background and final hiring process for all job titles. Accounts Payable includes payment for police equipment, as well as processing travel and P-card activities. The Federally funded Domestic Marijuana Eradication is included in our Special Programs area. Information Technology oversees all aspects of computer use including hardware, software, special applications, user training and end-user support. AgLaw Records uses an electronic records management system in compliance with law enforcement accreditation standards and Florida Statutes, enabling employees to search and retrieve historical information.
AgLaw Training is responsible for coordinating the agency’s specialized as well as annual in-service training for all sworn employees, to include maintaining state law enforcement certification and firearms qualifications. Once a sworn employee has been hired, AgLaw Training manages the Field Training Program. In addition, this section is responsible for processing all training requests for civilian employees, as well as handling all nominations for awards. The Training Section has also been tasked with coordinating the Agency's participation in emergency responses, handling public records requests, and conducting audits to account for all property assigned to the Agency.
On July 1, 2010, the Office of Agricultural Law Enforcement was reaccredited by the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement Accreditation after showing compliance with nearly 260 standards established by the commission. These standards ensure law enforcement agencies provide quality service to the community, as well as reduce liability for the agency and its members.
Administrative Services coordinates requests for the AgLaw Honor Guard, a program to provide tribute and to honor the memory of any employee, active or retired, who was in good standing at the time of death. The AgLaw Honor Guard is comprised of uniformed sworn employees trained in correct protocol for funeral services and ceremonial events.
