Notice of Variances and Waivers

Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission
11B-27.00212: Maintenance of Officer Certification
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on June 16, 2010, the Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission, received a petition for a permanent waiver of subsection 11B-27.00212(14), F.A.C., by Enery Castellanos. The rule requires officers to successfully complete firearms qualification every two years unless an officer is injured in the line of duty, which would grant the officer two additional years to complete the qualification. The Petitioner was in an off-duty automobile accident with injuries to her hands and could not complete firearms qualification by the deadline of June 30, 2010. The Petitioner would like to waive the operation of the rule in her case until such time as her physician certifies that she may participate in firearms training.
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, (850)410-7676.
