South Dakota LEOSA Guidelines for qualification of “Qualified Retired Law Enforcement Officers” by South Dakota Law Enforcement Training
The retiree is required to produce a photographic identification issued by the agency from which the individual retired from service prior to the beginning of the classroom training.
A $50 fee will be charged to those who participate. The fee includes .380, .38, 9MM, .40 or .45 rounds for qualification, training, and documentation of successful completion of qualified course of fire. Any other rounds not listed above would have to be provided by the retiree, 300 rounds total.
The actual course of fire to be successfully passed for qualification will be proctored up to three times per training event. If an individual does not successfully complete the course of fire after three attempts, they must attempt re‐qualification on another date. The fee is required for each date of training.
Course of fire requires minimum score of 75% on B‐21E target. (In accordance with current LE training practices and the published course of fire, any target with a B‐21 style scoring area is permitted)
Two hour classroom participation prior to qualification is mandatory.
The retiree is required to provide their own handgun and an outside the pants belt holster to participate.
A letter will be issued by Law Enforcement Training to the qualified retiree after successful completion of the training and course of fire indicating the qualification to state standards.
If an agency wishes to qualify retirees through their own firearms instructor, the same course of fire is to be utilized. Please call if you have any questions. (605) 773‐3584.
