Notice of Variances and Waivers

Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission
11B-27.00212: Maintenance of Officer Certification
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on January 10, 2012, the Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission, received a petition for a permanent waiver of subsection 11B-27.00212(14), F.A.C., from Office of the Marshall, Supreme Court of Florida, on behalf of five officers named in the petition. 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 officers had completed the course of fire, but were no longer employed with the Office of the Marshall well before the end of the 2008 reporting cycle. Some of the five officers had incomplete CJSTC 86A forms, others’ forms were missing from the training files.
Petitioner further states that it would violate the principles of fairness to fail to recognize that these five officers did actually complete the physical requirements of the rule.
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.
