State Details



Pre-LEOSA, POST (Colorado Department of Law, Criminal Justice Section – Colorado POST) used to issue retired officer concealed carry cards.  Since LEOSA, POST (Colorado) no longer handles LEOSA. POST has no involvement with any part of retired officer/concealed carry permits.  POST Administrative Assistant Lori Jencks advised that there is no “governing body” for LEOSA, nor is there any contact information for LEOSA matters of which she is aware.


It is up to each officer to determine whether they meet the criteria LEOSA stipulates, and all expenses for qualification are borne by the individual. 

POST Rule 27 – Retired Law Enforcement Officer Authority to Carry Concealed Firearms (Federal Law Effective October 12, 2010) governs the carrying of a concealed firearm by retired law enforcement officers in Colorado.

 Rule 27 can be viewed at:




Ms. Lori Jencks advised that POST Rule 27, was made invalid when the Federal law went into effect 10/12/2010.  It is still available in the POST Manual in strike-through format.
