Approved for Veteran’s Training

The Palm Bay Police Department was formally notified the week of February 12, 2007, by the Department of Veteran’s Affairs that we have been officially “Approved for Veteran’s Training.”

This means that probationary police officers, who are qualifying veterans and were Florida LEO certified after February 13, 2006, may be eligible for additional monthly benefits.

The “Montgomery GI Bill,” which supports this on-the-job training benefit, has been heralded as one of the most significant pieces of legislation produced by the federal government.
