The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA) was enacted in 2004 by President Bush and modified multiple times during the Obama administration. Per LEOSA, law enforcement officers who retired in good standing, were full time officers for ten of their last twelve years prior to retirement, and were issued official retirement identification from their agency, are eligible to carry a weapon in compliance with LEOSA. One of the requirements to carry a weapon under LEOSA is:
"during the most recent 12-month period, [the individual] has met, at the expense of the individual, the standards for qualification in firearms training for active law enforcement officers, as determined by the former agency of the individual, the State in which the individual resides or, if the State has not established such standards, either a law enforcement agency within the State in which the individual resides or the standards used by a certified firearms instructor that is qualified to conduct a firearms qualification test for active duty officers within that State"
