Our mission is to ensure the safety and well-being of law enforcement officers who qualify under the Law Enforcement Officer Safety Act (LEOSA), also known as HR218. We are dedicated to upholding the rights and privileges granted by this legislation, allowing qualified officers to carry concealed firearms nationwide, even when off-duty or retired.
Under the Law Enforcement Officer Safety Act (LEOSA), retired law enforcement officers are required to annually qualify in order to maintain their privileges to carry concealed firearms nationwide. This annual qualification serves as a measure to ensure retired officers possess the necessary skills and proficiency to safely and effectively handle firearms.
Retired officers must complete the qualification process, which involves demonstrating proficiency in marksmanship and firearm handling techniques. By successfully completing this annual qualification, retired officers reaffirm their ability to responsibly carry concealed firearms and uphold the standards of LEOSA.
The qualification requirement aims to uphold the spirit of LEOSA by ensuring retired officers remain prepared and capable of protecting themselves and others, even in their post-law enforcement careers. This requirement recognizes the ongoing commitment to public safety and acknowledges the importance of maintaining proficiency with firearms.
The annual qualification serves as a safeguard to ensure retired officers continue to meet the necessary criteria outlined by LEOSA, reinforcing the trust and confidence placed in law enforcement professionals throughout their careers and into retirement.
