The NRA, as an organization, has been providing firearms training, competition, and safety programs since its inception in 1871.
The Law Enforcement Division (LED) of the NRA was established in 1960 specifically to provide the law enforcement community with a means to certify law enforcement firearm instructors.
We also offer law enforcement firearm competitions, as we believe competition is a direct extension of training. Since 1962 we have conducted the National Police Shooting Championships, as they are known today.
In 2008, we began an exciting new multi-gun law enforcement competition called the Tactical Police Competition, or TPC.
The Law Enforcement Division is here to assist the law enforcement and military in any capacity it can.
