Debbie Rose

I have been a police officer with the New York State Police since 1996, during which time I worked in uniform patrol until 2004, consisting of investigations, drug interdiction, forensic identification, criminal arrests and community policing. I completed instructor development school as well as firearms instructor school in 2001. I have taught firearms on several levels including at the New York State Police Academy and in the field. In addition to being a Department of Criminal Justice firearms instructor, I am also a Glock Armourer and an OC pepper-spray. In 2004, I was promoted to the Bureau of Criminal Investigations, where I was specifically assigned to the Community Narcotics Enforcement Team and Commercial Casino Gaming Unit. In June 2020, I retired from the New York State Police and currently provide private firearms instruction as well as Concealed Carry permit classes. In November 2020, proudly started my own woman owned business, Girls Shoot Guns Too.
