The Office of Agricultural Law Enforcement has a written directive system that specifies policies, procedures, regulations, and practices in writing and is available to all Agency employees. The directives have a standardized format and indexing system that allows for greater understanding and flexibility. These directives provide employees with a clear understanding of the constraints and expectations relating to the performance of their duties. Input from all levels in developing written directives is encouraged and executive staff approval is required prior to any directive’s dissemination. Regular review and updating of directives is required to keep written procedures current with Agency practices.
AgLaw utilizes an electronic policy distribution system that allows employees to receive, review, and electronically sign for written directives. AgLaw employees may access current policies and procedures, Bureau Special Orders, Standard Operating Procedures, Special Purpose Manuals, Training Bulletins, Legal Bulletins and forms through the internet via the following link: https://powerdms.com/ui/Login.aspx?companyid=FDACS.
AgLaw employees seeking current versions of forms used in the line of duty may access the forms through the PowerDMS electronic system or through the forms spreadsheet on AgLaw’s shared drive.
Citizens and law enforcement professionals interested in obtaining a copy of AgLaw’s written directives may request the items by contacting our Accreditation Manager, Judith Ivester, at Judith.Ivester@freshfromflorida.com, or by telephone at 850-245-1326.
