About the Illinois Retired Officer Concealed Carry (IROCC)

 

On July 22, 2004, Congress passed, and the President signed, the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act of 2004 (the “Act”), Public Law Number 108-277, 118 Statute 865 (2004), codified as 18 U.S.C. §§ 926B and 926C. 

 

With certain limitations and conditions, the Act exempts active and retired “qualified law enforcement officers” from state laws and local ordinances prohibiting the carrying of concealed firearms.  In accordance with the Federal Act, Illinois passed Public Act 94-103 (2005) that provides for the annual firearm qualification of qualified retired law enforcement officers required under this federal law. 

 

Coordinating and completing the federally mandated yearly “firearm qualification” and issuance of the IROCC card is the only function statutorily granted the Illinois Retired Officer Concealed Carry program by federal law. We do not offer legal opinions or attempt to clarify information of these Federal Statues.
