Notice of Variances and Waivers
RULE NO.: RULE TITLE:11B-27.00212
: Maintenance of Officer Certification
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on January 20, 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 Webster Police Department on behalf of one officer, Danny L. Young, for the 2008 (7/1/2006 – 6/30/2008) mandatory firearms requalification reporting cycle. 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 Officer Young did indeed fire the required rounds, however he was supervised and his CJSTC 86A form was signed by an inactive CJSTC firearms instructor. Petitioner further states that it would violate the principles of fairness to fail to recognize that Officer Young 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.
