"The 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 or separated Law Enforcement Officer" - to carry a concealed firearm in any jurisdiction in the United States or United States Territories, regardless of state or local laws, with certain exceptions.


To begin your application process, you must create an online LEOSA account. This can be done using the 'Login' menu located at the top of the page. Once you have created your account, you'll be prompted to complete and submit the LEOSA application, upload applicable materials, and make payment.

The 'Who Qualifies' section above can help you determine the application that you should complete. There is also a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page that may answer any questions related to the application process. Incomplete or incorrect applications will result in applicants being contacted and asked to provide additional information. If you are contacted regarding an incomplete application, you will have 60 days to correct and/or resubmit any missing or incorrectly filled out documentation."
