LEOSA Qualification (HR218)

For Retired Law-Enforcement Officers Only under Title 18 USC 926C aka the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA).

With your retired Officer ID card, you must qualify once each year.

(1) A photographic identification issued by the agency from which the individual separated from service as a law enforcement officer that indicates that the individual has, not less recently than one year before the date the individual is carrying the concealed firearm, been tested or otherwise found by the agency to meet the active duty standards for qualification in firearms training as established by the agency to carry a firearm of the same type as the concealed firearm; or

(2)(A) A photographic identification issued by the agency from which the individual separated from service as a law enforcement officer; and

(B) A certification issued by the State in which the individual resides or by a certified firearms instructor that is qualified to conduct a firearms qualification test for active-duty officers within that State that indicates that the individual has, not less than 1 year before the date the individual is carrying the concealed firearm, been tested or otherwise found by the State or a certified firearms instructor that is qualified to conduct a firearms qualification test for active-duty officers within that State to have met—

(I) the active duty standards for qualification in firearms training, as established by the State, to carry a firearm of the same type as the concealed firearm; or

(II) if the State has not established such standards, standards set by any law enforcement agency within that State to carry a firearm of the same type as the concealed firearm.

We will issue you a card to keep with your retirement ID that states that we qualified you on the range in accordance with LEOSA requirements for the annual qualification.

Our default qualification is the standard off-duty/backup qualification used by most agencies. However, if your former agency has a specific qualification they prefer, please let us know and we’re happy to accommodate.

How to Get Your LEOSA Qualification

As far as where to go and when to go there, we have two options for you:

Option A)

Attend one of our Proficient Shooter clinics – it’s 2 hours of shooting (including holster work and reloads) with an instructor from the Sheriff’s range. Stuff you can’t do at a typical range because they won’t let you. Clinics are $95, including the range fees, and you’ll burn through 100-200 rounds – they vary. We make them a little different each time.

To sign up: Sign up by going to the Proficient Shooter Program. When you complete the checkout process, please be sure to include “LEOSA Qualification” in the notes so we can be prepared for you. Once we receive your registration, we’ll email you a confirmation with directions and instructions.

Option B)

Just come out and qualify – no training, no practice. Bing Bang Boom, In and out. That includes the range fee that we have to pay on your behalf, picking up your brass, compensating the instructor, helping pay for the insurance, maintaining our certifications for these and all the stuff that goes with doing this for you annually.

Enrollment and Payment:

You may complete the enrollment and payment process by clicking the “See Class Dates and Register” button above. This will take you to our class management site. Once you have completed the checkout process and your payment is received, you will get a confirmation email with instructions on how and where we meet for the range, as well as any other information specific to the class.  If you don’t see a date for the course you are interested in, please contact us to make an appointment.

You will need to complete one course Liability Waiver Form for each student attending and if you have paid by credit card either online or over the phone please remember to bring a copy of the completed enrollment/waiver form with you on the day of the class.
