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.
