Notice of Variances and Waivers
RULE NO.: RULE TITLE:11B-27.00212
: Maintenance of Officer Certification
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on November 01, 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 Wildwood Police Department on behalf of one officer for the 2006-2008 (7/1/2006 – 6/30/2008) and 2008-2010 (7/1/2008 – 6/30/2010) reporting cycles. 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 and supervised by a CJSTC-certified firearms instructor. The petition supports the requested waiver by stating that the officer at issue did, in fact, successfully complete the required course of fire, however, the instructor supervising the officer was not a CJSTC-certified firearms instructor. Petitioner further states that it would violate the principles of fairness to fail to recognize that the officer did successfully complete all of the requirements for the 2008 and 2010 reporting cycles and that the oversight was the result of his requalifications being supervised by a non-CJSTC-certified firearms instructor.
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.
