State Law/Regulation/Directive

New Hampshire RSA 106.L:5, XXII authorizes the Police Standards and Training Council (PSTC) to adopt rules to implement the provisions of the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act. The PSTC adopted Administrative Rule 404.03(m) – (o) for that purpose.



The agency the officer retired or separated from may or may not issue a retired Identification Card.

Any officer holding a current PSTC firearms instructor certification, whose agency is willing to provide the service, can qualify the retired law enforcement officer.

Once the qualified retired law enforcement officer successfully completes the requirements of Administrative Rule 404.03(m) - (o), the certified firearms instructor will issue documentation to the qualified retired officer noting his/her compliance with Title 18 U.S.C. 926C.
