Military Waivers

Active Military Deployment Waivers For Full and Part-Time Officers

At the quarterly meeting of the Criminal Justice Training Council held March 8th, 2005, the following waiver provisions were approved by the Council and will take effect immediately:

The Council has authorized the Executive Director to grant waivers of Rule 13 for persons on active military deployment status. The conditions of this waiver are:  

  1. The active law enforcement officer must be on active military orders for a period of at least six months in a calendar year.  Copies of the orders must be provided to the Council;
  2. Upon return from military deployment, the law enforcement officer must re-qualify with their duty weapon within 30 days; and,
  3. Upon return from military deployment, the law enforcement officer must attend first aid training within 30 days or provide documentation that such training was received during active military service.

At the quarterly meeting of the Criminal Justice Training Council held September 13th, 2005, the Council expanded the authorization for the Director to grant waivers to provisional part-time certified officers.  An individual who is activated/deployed and who is in a provisional certification period will have their status “frozen” until they return, at which time their 12-month clock will continue.

All requests for an “active military deployment” waiver must be submitted in writing to the Executive Director.
