In an effort to continue to meet Federal law and MPTC guidelines, we are advising all shooters to bring a magazine pouch and spare magazine for semi-auto pistols and a speed loader and pouch for a revolver. The new course of fire for 2017 will be similar to the old course but will include a timed reload and turning targets now that the training will be held at the new indoor range.  It is advisable that you practice reloading for your handgun prior to your scheduled leosa training date.

Law Enforcement Officer Safety Act (LEOSA) - Handgun Certification Procedures

Montgomery County Police retirees who are interested in LEOSA training should follow these procedures:

  • Download and complete the LEOSA Registration form(If your application has not been returned to the office as completed by the Wednesday prior to your scheduled date, you will be contacted to reschedule.)


  • The registration form must be completed, NOTARIZED, and mailed at least 30 days before your qualification date.  It may take up to 45 days for the forms to go through the process of a background check and Internal Affairs check.  When qualifying for the first time, please submit the registration form at least 60 days prior to the qualification date. Paperwork that has not been cleared through Records and IAD two days prior to the qualification date will prevent you from attending the class.  You will receive notification to reschedule.  Please DO NOT show up to the range if this occurs.
