Recently Chief Gary Calhoun of Eustis Police Department asked FPCA to survey members regarding their policies regarding giving a retiring officer his/her handgun upon retirement. Chief Calhoun collected the responses and shared the results so we can share with you. As a note, Florida Statutes say that the agency may give a retiring officer his/her gun, but it is optional.
Approximately 90% of the agencies in Florida do give the service weapon to their retirees. Click here for the results.
