    Retired LE Bill Changes S 1132

    U.S. House of Representatives Passes "Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act Improvements Act

    Friday, October 01, 2010

    Measure Now Goes to the President for Signature

    The U.S. House of Representatives voted this week to pass S. 1132 -- the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act Improvements Act. This important legislation addresses problems that have occurred in the implementation of the original Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA) of 2004.

    "The security challenges we face as a country are immense," said NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox. "Our law enforcement has to deal with threats from terrorists, criminals and other unsavory elements on a daily basis. These challenges are further complicated by financial cutbacks resulting in furloughed criminals and laid-off law enforcement officers. Amending the law to make it easier for retired law enforcement officers to carry a firearm is a common-sense measure that benefits everyone."

    Among other things, S. 1132 would:

    Ensure availability of required training, by allowing a retired officer to meet the standard of any agency in his state or of his own former agency. (Currently, officers have to meet state standards, which not all states prescribe.) Addresses departmental liability concerns by allowing training to be conducted by state-qualified private firearm instructors.
    Make clear that LEOSA carry rights extend to retired officers who served with one department, but retired from another.
    Reduce the required time in service to qualify for LEOSA carry rights from 15 years to 10.
    Strike language that conditioned retirees' carry rights on eligibility for retirement benefits.
    Make clear that the law also applies to all federal officers and officers of the Amtrak Police Department.
    "I would like to thank Senators Pat Leahy and Jeff Sessions for their leadership in helping secure passage of this measure. We look forward to seeing this important pro-law enforcement bill become law," concluded Cox.

    The House companion bill is H.R. 3752, sponsored by Congressmen Randy Forbes (R-VA) and Rick Boucher (D-VA).

    The house verson included retired military law enforcement, the senate did not. I was hoping the final version did.

    GS-083 Civilian police under the "Excutive Branch" (White House Police, Veterans Affairs Police, Federal Protective Service, etc) are included, but NOT civilian military police (civilians employed under the Army, Air Force, Navy), nor military members that have the AFSC or MOS of police officer.

    Those federal police that qualify will carry official FLEO credentials.

    Your Not going to see it. The bill is written in "legaleze". You have to interpret it.

    http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=s111-1132

    To amend title 18, United States Code, to improve the provisions relating to the carrying of concealed weapons by law enforcement officers, and for other purpose

    SEC. 2. AMENDMENTS TO LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER SAFETY PROVISIONS OF TITLE 18

    a) In General- Section 926B of title 18, United States Code: Title 18,926B. Carrying of concealed firearms by qualified law enforcement officers | LII / Legal Information Institute United States Code, is amended--

    (1) in subsection (c)(3), by inserting ‘which could result in suspension or loss of police powers’ after ‘agency’; and

    (2) by adding at the end the following:

    ‘(f) For the purposes of this section, a law enforcement officer of the Amtrak Police Department, a law enforcement officer of the Federal Reserve, or a law enforcement or police officer of the executive branch of the Federal Government qualifies as an employee of a governmental agency who is authorized by law to engage in or supervise the prevention, detection, investigation, or prosecution of, or the incarceration of any person for, any violation of law, and has statutory powers of arrest..

    This:
    (d) The identification required by this subsection is the photographic identification issued by the governmental agency for which the individual is employed as a law enforcement officer.

    is STILL needed. The civilian military police do not issue Police Officer ID.
