Hi all! I just finished my last class of the Law Enforcement academy today, Woo!

I have a question about applying for a CWP in FL. I was told by one of our 8 firearm instructors that after I graduate I can contact Tallahasse and show papers prving that I have passed all classes which will keep me from having to take the CWP class. Is there any truth to this? I was hoping someone could shed some light onto this for me.

From what I have read in CWP you have to be active or retired and have a I,D card issued to you with your picture from your agency.  Google CWP florida.

Since you are a Police Officer you can carry under your departments commission. HR 218. Welcome to the family.

I believe it's Dept of Agriculture that handle the application process.  You need to get an application from them, get a letter from the Dept that you are in good standing and there is something else, don't remember what it is.  Call the Dept of Agriculture or stop by your nearest office, they will tell you what you need. Sounds like you still have to pass state exam, focus on that first.  If you don't pass the state exam, you won't have a job!

Thanks.

Yes, I have to take the SOCE, I've already paid for the test and have the date picked out. I've had my CWP for quite some time now, my question was just out of curiosity because of what I was told by the instructor

There are no day classes offered at the academy I attended. Feel free to ask any questions that you may have, I'll try my best to answer.

I may have misunderstood. Are you a police officer or just an academy graduate?

I think he is just a graduate of a self-sponsored academy and thus he does not fall under HR 218.  If he gets hired by a department then he wouldn't have to worry about the CCW, CPL or CWP or whatever they call it in Florida.  He MIGHT be able to use his records of his marksmanship to bypass the actual shooting. . . .but as we all know, the private citizen has restrictions that the police officer (off duty that is) does not and it would probably do him good to go through the classroom part of it anyway.  As you always say though. . . ."Go to the respective agency and ASK".

Yeah well, the mentality of some of the past "questioners" (speaking generically here) that we've seen, I don't want to be the one that pushes them to being an "axe" murderer. . . .

I hope it doesn't cost you in Florida what it does in Michigan.  $105 every 5 years for the CWP in Michigan.

But the renewal is every seven years, not annually.
