Sarasota County Sheriff Kurt A. Hoffman is pleased to announce that Corrections Sergeant Adam Sherman graduated from the Florida Leadership Academy, Class 52. The Florida Leadership Academy's goals are to train efficient leaders, prepare first-line supervisors, and grow integrity and character in the criminal justice professionals who attend this program.

Sergeant Sherman graduated Friday, January 13, 2023, with a diverse group of 40 law enforcement professionals who all serve in leadership roles and represent criminal justice agencies throughout the state. Broward College Institute of Public Safety in Davie, Florida, hosted the attendees for four week-long sessions. They were prepared for future challenges as they learned the necessary skills to support the needs of their communities and agencies.

“It’s imperative that our supervisors continue their education through career development courses and programs like the Florida Leadership Academy,” said Sheriff Hoffman. “Continuing education is a vital part of our succession planning.”

Sherman joined the sheriff’s office in 2006 as a Corrections Deputy. He was promoted to sergeant in 2018 and graduated from the SCSO Internal Leadership Academy. He has been a member of the sheriff’s office Corrections Emergency Response Team for 12 years.
