The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA) is a United States federal law, enacted in 2004, that allows a "qualified retired law enforcement officer" to carry a concealed firearm across state lines and in any jurisdiction of the United States, with certain exceptions to include individual state laws.
Issuance of the LEOSA permit is regulated by 18 U.S.C. § 926C (Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act Improvements Act of 2010). This permit is specifically granted to retired LAW ENFORCEMENT Personnel only.
The initial application process must be done in person. Retirees are required to renew their LEOSA permits annually and are authorized to submit their required documents (application & annual firearms qualification) via mail or in person for up to five (5) renewing periods. The fifth year they will be required to present in person to our office for updated photograph and file review.
