Retired Police Officers can qualify by successfully completing the HR218 qualification course
There are only 10 slots per session, if you do not confirm your registration promptly you may lose your spot and will have to register for a new session.
Due to the current ongoing pandemic there have been procedural as well as physical changes made to the Rockland County LEOSA HR-218 qualification program.
THESE CHANGES ARE ON A DOWNLOADABLE FORM THAT MUST BE SIGNED AND BROUGHT TO THE RANGE WHEN YOU QUALIFY.
We apologize for any inconvenience but these changes have been made to maximize the safety of our clientele as well as our Range Safety volunteers.
We appreciate your cooperation but due to the severity of the health risk as well as the complexity of running a safe Range Qualification process we will be enforcing a Zero Tolerance Policy. Anyone not adhering to the required procedures will not be permitted to enter the RCPA Range Facility.
(NOTE: This does not preclude a client’s return at a later date.)

The Rockland County Police and Public Safety Academy, located in Rockland County, NY will be conducting handgun qualification courses for former officers. The course of fire is the law enforcement qualification course published by New York State DCJS.
After firing a passing score the former officer will be issued a HR 218 photo-ID card. The card states that the eligible individual passed the qualification course, the date, the type of firearm used (revolver or semi-automatic or both) and a phone number for the Rockland County Sheriffs Communications Center, manned 24/7, that can be called to verify the information shown on the card.
