My name is Edward Andrews and I have been registered as a SCOP Officer with the VMFA since April of 2021. I believe that my successful completion of an Entry Level Firearms Course based on private security regulations was more than sufficient for my duties at the VMFA since I provide a security function and not a law enforcement function. With the training I received, I am confident in my ability to use a firearm if necessary, and therefore not in favor of changing the firearms training requirements. I would prefer to see SCOP Officers continue to qualify on private security courses. Thank you for your time and consideration.
