Notice of Variances and Waivers
RULE NO.: RULE TITLE:11B-27.00212
: Maintenance of Officer Certification
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on September 07, 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 Suwannee County Sheriff’s Office on behalf of Lt. Wayne Musgrove. 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. The petition supports the requested waiver by stating that Lt. Musgrove did successfully complete the course of fire, however, he was the only CJSTC certified firearms instructor in the agency at the time and signed his own CJSTC form 86A requalification certifications for the 2008 and 2010 reporting cycles. Petitioner states that this officer will suffer a substantial hardship if his certification is rendered inactive as a result of this situation. Petitioner further states that it would violate the principles of fairness to fail to recognize that Lt. Musgrove did successfully complete the requirement.
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, (850)410-7676.
