During Upcoming Webinar, Henley-Putnam Senior Military Advisor Mike Angley, Colonel & Special Agent (USAF, ret) will provide a look at the law and its revisions.

Henley-Putnam University is pleased to host the next installment of its Strategic Security webinar series. On May 7, 2014, at 1:00 PM, EDT, Henley-Putnam Senior Military Advisor Mike Angley will present the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA) of 2004: Revisions, Changes and Implications.

Those interested in participating in the webinar should register at https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/418654498

Signed into law on July 22, 2004, by President George W. Bush and codified as 18 U.S.C. §§ 926B & C, LEOSA was intended to afford qualified active law enforcement officers (QLEO) and qualified retired law enforcement officers (QRLEO) the privilege of carrying a concealed firearm in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and all other U.S. possessions (except the Canal Zone) notwithstanding any other provision of the law of any state or political subdivision thereof.

Since its implementation, it has been amended a handful of times to expand the number of law enforcement agencies which qualify, as well as to shorten the length of service a separated (formerly “retired”) law enforcement officer needs to qualify after leaving law enforcement status. One of the most significant expansions to the law came about in 2013 when military law enforcement officers were given equal status to their civilian counterparts. There also have been a number of court cases and challenges to the law, which have resulted in refinements along the way. Even the most well-versed law enforcement experts have found the law and its provisions confusing, so the webinar will serve as a good foundation for LEOSA as it exists today.

During the webinar, Col. Angley will cover the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act of 2004, its many changes, and controversies. The presentation will include the following topics, among others:

  •     The Law
  •     The revisions since its 2004 inception
  •     Controversies and court cases
  •     The 2013 revision that was expanded to include current and former law enforcement officers from the uniformed services

The webinar is open to the public and completely free of charge.
