Good day, Mason here.

What is the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA)?

The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA) is a United States federal law, enacted in 2004, that allows two classes of persons - the “QUALIFIED DoD (ACTIVE) Law Enforcement Officer” and the “QUALIFIED DoD (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.

Since its enactment, LEOSA has subsequently been amended to expand its scope to include active and retired law enforcement officers for the Amtrak Police, Federal Reserve Police, law enforcement officers of the executive branch of the federal government and military police.
