11B-27.0011: Moral Character
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that on November 24, 2010, the Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission, received a petition for a permanent waiver of subsection 11B-27.0011(4), F.A.C., by Andrea Johnson-Minnis. The rule requires CJSTC instructor candidates and instructors to maintain good moral character prior to becoming certified or recertified. The Petitioner wishes to waive those portions of the rule requiring her to possess good moral character as a prerequisite to reactivating her inactive instructor certification. Petitioner’s corrections certificate was revoked by the Commission in 1990. Petitioner subsequently obtained an instructor certificate which became inactive in 2007. Petitioner has been instructing non-CJSTC courses for the Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) for the past three years. DJJ does not have a certified academy. Petitioner is not affiliated with a Florida criminal justice agency, nor is she affiliated with a certified training school.
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.
