What is the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA)?
The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA), enacted in 2004, is also referred to as H.R. 218.
This regulation enables two classes of persons – active and retired law enforcement officers – to carry concealed firearms in any jurisdiction of the U.S.
What are the eligibility requirements under the LEOSA regulations?
You must have:
- 10 or more years of service within a law enforcement agency; and
- Proof (via Photographic ID issued by your previous Agency or certification) that you
have met the active duty standards for firearms training established by the Agency within the previous 12 months

Why do I need the LEOSA Self-Defense Plan?
Under LEOSA, eligible retired law enforcement officers are legally entitled to possess a firearm for self-defense. Unfortunately, most traditional homeowner’s policies specifically exclude losses resulting from the use of such a weapon – regardless of the circumstances. The individual would be financially liable for any legal costs resulting from its use.
