LEOSA HF 218 Retired Police CarryThe Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA) is a United States federal law, enacted in 2004, that allows two classes of persons—the “qualified law enforcement officer” and the “qualified retired law enforcement officer” — to carry a concealed firearm in any jurisdiction in the United States, regardless of any state or local law to the contrary, with certain exceptions. The LEOSA was considered during the 108th Congress as H.R. 218.Once signed by President Bush, it enacted Public Law 108-277, which put into effect 18 USC 926B. (WIKI definition)

Minnesota POST Board has published a set course of fire and topics and questions for the LEOSA candidate.

The entire process, range and questions take approximately one hour. We use an outdoor range (The Horse and Hunt Club), and the Q&A takes place in the clubhouse of the Horse and Hunt Club in Prior Lake.
