As you may recall, my friend just retired as a LEO.

Does Florida have a special CCW license for retired LEOs?

If so, does anyone have a link for information on this retired LEO license (i.e. fees, etc.)?

Thanks...

Look over at www.packing.org

You'll find an answer there and if not, they also have a forum you could ask on.

There is not a separate CCW for LEOs or Retired LEOs. They get the same license as everyone else. The only difference is they can identify themselves as LEOs on the application form and their personal (name/address/etc) information will not be made public under Florida's Sunshine Law.

He was told the regular CCW is called a "W" while the one for retired LEOs is called a "WR".

Does this make sense?

If so, what is the difference, if any?:confused:

Thanks...

The license itself is the same. The license number for a civilian begins with a W. The WR is probably a different classification similar to the different driver's license types.

The way it works is a LEO applying for a CCW license does not have to undergo the background check or pay for the background check. He only pays for the license itself. A retired LEO is exempt for one year from the background check and background check fee. He also only pays the licensing fee. After one year, he pays the same as everyone else and no longer has a different classification from non-LEOs.

See 790.06 (3) (b) at The 2002 Florida Statutes (http://www.flsenate.gov/Statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&Search_String=&URL=Ch0790/SEC06.HTM&Title=->2000->Ch0790->Section%2006)
