NRA: Still Training Law Enforcement

In 1960, NRA established a Law Enforcement Division specifically to provide the law-enforcement community with a means to certify its firearm instructors. NRA also offers law enforcement firearm competitions, as it believes competition is a direct extension of training.

They include the National Police Shooting Championships, as well as a new multi-gun event called the Tactical Police Competition, or TPC. But your NRA has served the needs of the nation’s law enforcement community for more than 100 years—calling for and then developing the first practice regimen for police officers in the United States.

You can find out more by reading “NRA & Police: More Than A Century Of Service."

In that article, American Rifleman Editor-in-Chief Mark Keefe notes that, since the department’s founding in 1960, NRA has trained more than 59,000 NRA Law Enforcement instructors, and there are more than 13,000 active today.

Even as COVID-19 has shut down much of NRA’s in-person training, NRA Law Enforcement Division Director Glenn Hoyer has personally stepped up to make sure that local retired law enforcement officers needing to re-qualify under the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA) have an opportunity to do so at the NRA Range in Fairfax, Va.
