Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act

LEOSA Laws by State

The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA) is a federal law, enacted in 2004, that allows qualified current law enforcement officers and qualified retired law enforcement officers to carry a concealed firearm in any jurisdiction in the United States, regardless of state or local laws, with certain exceptions.

The information included within this site is to be used by those who are currently qualified under LEOSA or are looking for information on becoming qualified to carry a firearm under LEOSA. 

Due to the complexity of qualification requirements by various states, the NRA provides this information as a service to our many law enforcement members.

The map and laws are included as a tool to assist you in validating your information. We have made every effort to report the information correctly, however, information is subject to frequent change. The information is not intended as legal advice or a restatement of law and does not include any other factor which may limit recognition.  For any particular situation, a licensed local attorney must be consulted for an accurate interpretation.  YOU MUST ABIDE WITH ALL LAWS: STATE, FEDERAL AND LOCAL.
