Qualification for Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) retired officers will be offered in August 2022 at the Davis Training Facility and the Elysian Park Academy. This qualification course is intended to comply with the requirements of House Resolution 218, the Law Enforcement Officer’s Safety Act of 2004, which allows retired police officers to carry a concealed weapon while traveling throughout the United States. LAPD retired officers must supply their own factory ball ammunition. Only Department approved pistols are permitted on ranges. A primary side hip holster is required. Retirees must be free of any condition that would preclude them from safely operating a firearm and must follow all Department range safety rules. Retirees are required to wear a closed neck shirt and closed-toe shoes to qualify.
