Daytona Beach Shores is a good agency in Volusia County and they are triple certified - police/fire/EMT - as they combined all three into a public safety agency years ago (and figured out how to make it work). Typically they hire individuals with one of the certificates and pay them full salary to obtain the other two. The only other agency I would recommend in Volusia County is the Volusia County Sheriff's Office. They usually put a few individuals through each academy but many of their hires were ones who put themselves through it. The LEO academy at Daytona State College, who both these agencies use, is:

In-state tuition: $2925 (requires one year previous state residency)
Out of state tuition $9750
Uniforms, books, TABE test and BAT test about $790.

Let me know if you have any questions.
