Notice of Variances and Waivers
RULE NO.: RULE TITLE:11B-27.00212
: Maintenance of Officer Certification
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on January 17, 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 Center Hill Police Department on behalf of one officer for the 2008 (7/1/2006 – 6/30/2008) and 2010 (7/1/2008 – 6/30/2010) mandatory firearms requalification 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 completed the course of fire for the 2008 and 2010 reporting cycles, however, he was a CJSTC-certified firearms instructor and he signed his own CJSTC 86A form. 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 successfully complete the requirement, his only deficiency being that as a CJSTC-certified firearms instructor, he signed his own CJSTC 86A form for the 2008 and 2010 mandatory firearms requalification reporting cycle.
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.
