HR-218 Webinar

Hello, LEOs,

As requested, Sheepdog Academy is again holding its next live webinar on HR 218 – LEOSA National Concealed Carry in 2 parts on 2 consecutive weeknights instead of a full Saturday. Please see below on the topics that will be discussed on each day. Registration to begin in July. Another email will be sent out at that time. Please stay tuned.

When: Wednesday, July 29, 2020 and Thursday, July 30th, 2020 from 6-8 pm EST.

This 4-hour webinar is a MUST for all current and retired LEOs and explores the 45 plus court decisions which impact the rights and responsibilities of qualified current and retired LEOs under the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act of 2004 (commonly known as “H.R. 218” or “LEOSA”) as amended by the Improvements Act of 2010 and 2013. Attendees will reduce their off-duty risk of being arrested and their on-duty risk for civil liability by learning who can carry, what firearms can be carried, when firearms can be carried, where they can and cannot be carried, why they may be carried, and how firearms must be carried under LEOSA.

Thus far, this seminar has been taught to current and/or retired LEOs from over 300 agencies, including federal agencies (U.S. Secret Service, FBI, U.S. Customs & Border Protection, U.S. Coast Guard, etc…); bi-state agencies (Port Authority of NY/NJ OIG and Waterfront Commission of NY/NJ), New Jersey agencies (NJ Attorney General’s Office, NJ Transit Police, Rutgers Univ. Police, Hudson County Prosecutor, etc…); New York agencies (NY State Dept of Corrections, New York City Police, etc…)….
