On December 2, 2004, the Nevada Sheriffs’ and Chiefs’ Association (NvSCA) met and adopted rules for the qualification of law enforcement retirees in compliance with LEOSA, the Law Enforcement Safety Act of 2004. On May 31, 2005, Governor Guinn signed into law NRS 202.3678 which gave the Sheriff’s of the State of Nevada authority to implement these procedures.
Nevada participating law enforcement agencies or a Sheriff‐approved firearms instructors (pursuant to the concealed weapon permit law, NRS 202.3657) may conduct LEOSA qualification shoots.
LEOSA qualification may be obtained by firing a qualification course conducted by a participating law enforcement agency or by a Sheriff‐approved firearms instructor (pursuant to the concealed weapon permit law, NRS 202.3657). Qualifications will be at the expense of the retiree when necessary. The list of available civilian firearm instructors can be obtained from the county Sheriff’s Office Concealed Weapon unit.
Upon successful qualification, the instructor and retiree complete the “Retirement Qualification & Waiver Form.”
The qualification score and the type of firearm that was qualified with, (revolver, semi‐automatic or both) MUST be indicated on this form. The type that is indicated will be the type the retiree may carry concealed for the purposes of LEOSA.
The retiree must submit the completed Retirement Qualification & Waiver Form to the county sheriff’s Concealed Weapon Permit unit of the county in which he/she resides. Along with this form, the retiree bring his a valid, photographic identification from the agency he/she retired from as well as the letter from the agency he/she retired from that states the retiree was honorably retired after serving the required length of time.
An agency letter will not be required in instances where the retiree has been issued a photographic identification from their agency that specifically states the retiree is a retired law enforcement officer as per The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act of 2004(LEOSA, H.R. 218, P.L 108‐277. 18 U.S.C. 926C).
CONCEALED WEAPON PERMIT UNIT
The Concealed Weapon Permit unit of the county sheriff’s office will ensure the retiree is in possession of valid, photographic identification issued by the agency from which he/she retired and will conduct a background check on the retiree. This criminal history background, at a minimum, will consist of checks of the local criminal history database, NCJIS and NCIC.
If the retiree has satisfactorily met all requirements, the Concealed Weapon Permit unit of the county sheriff’s office will issue the retiree the NvSCA Qualification card stating that he/she has met the qualification requirements set forth LEOSA. This card must be carried anytime the retiree is carrying a firearm concealed.
If the retiree has not satisfactorily met all requirements, the Concealed Weapon Permit detail of the county sheriff’s office will provide the retiree a written notice informing them for the reason(s) for not issuing the LEOSA card.
A fee may be charged by the county sheriff’s office to defer the cost of the background check and processing the application.
