Alabama does not have a designated state agency that is responsible of LEOSA matters. As a result no qualification card is issued by Alabama. The Firearms score card signed by a firearms instructor serves as proof of qualification. The Alabama Peace Officers Standards & Training Commission (POST) is responsible for the oversight and regulation of firearms qualification issues for active, state certified law enforcement officers.

In Alabama, an individual must meet the definition of a law enforcement officer/retired law enforcement officer as defined in LEOSA. The individual must have ‘Active’ or ‘Retired’ credentials from the officer’s agency. Retired officers must qualify annually with an “NRA, FBI, or FLETC certified firearms instructor and keep their most recent qualification form with them at all times they are armed.” Retired Alabama LEOs should go back to their former departments to be qualified. LEOs who retired from out of state departments or agencies should make arrangements with local law enforcement departments/agencies or NRA, FBI, or FLETC certified firearms instructor to be qualified.
