Retired Law Enforcement Officers

 The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA) exempts qualified retired Law Enforcement Officers from State and local laws prohibiting the carrying of concealed firearms. Please note that it does not supersede any State or local laws that prohibit or restrict the possession of firearms on any State or local property, installation, building, base, or park. Retired Maryland Natural Resources Police (NRP) Officers interested in obtaining their LEOSA card or need to requalify for their LEOSA card should contact the Training Academy at 410-875-3538.

Only NRP retirees who retired in good standing are eligible for a LEOSA card.

Academy staff will provide you with contact information for an Area Firearms Instructor. The Area Instructor will provide dates, times, locations, qualification requirements, and other essential information.

The NRP does not qualify retired officers from other police agencies.
