Notice of Variances and Waivers

Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission
11B-27.00212: Maintenance of Officer Certification
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on July 25, 2011, the Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission, received a petition for a permanent waiver of subsection 11B-27.00212(14), F.A.C., from Bradford County Sheriff’s Office on behalf of certain officers. Subsection 11B-27.00212(14), F.A.C., requires officers to requalify with a firearm every two years on a course of fire mandated by Commission rule. Petitioner nor its officers can demonstrate that firearms requalifications were conducted for the 2008 and 2010 reporting cycles. The petition supports the requested waiver by stating that the principles of fairness will be violated if the requested petition is not granted. Petitioner also alleges that an application of the rule in this case would cause substantial hardship to the agency and the officers involved.
A copy of the Petition for Variance or Waiver may be obtained by contacting: Grace A. Jaye, Assistant General Counsel, Florida Department of Law Enforcement, P. O. Box 1489, Tallahassee, FL 32302 or by telephoning (850)410-7676.
