Notice of Variances and Waivers
RULE NO.: RULE TITLE: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 Naples Police Department on behalf of Officer Joshua Holcombe for the 2008 (7/1/2006 – 6/30/2008) mandatory firearms requalification reporting period. 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 attempted to comply with the rule, but was prevented by a serious injury to his hand. Petitioner states that the 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 the officer did not have an opportunity to complete training because of an injury to his hand.
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.
