Retired Law Enforcement Officer Self-Defense Insurance

With hundreds of thousands of retired public law enforcement officers around the country, and over 800,000 active-duty public law enforcement officers, the NRA knows how important it is to provide a special self-defense insurance policy for this unique group.

Agency Affiliation

Agency affiliation is available to both public and private organizations. By affiliating themselves with the NRA, an agency is eligible to have all of their firearm training lesson plans, courses of fire and qualification courses reviewed and approved by the NRA. We will review your submitted courses, make recommendations as necessary, have them reviewed by the NRA's Office of General Counsel and then return them with a stamp of approval. Approval lasts for three years or until updates are made, at which time a resubmission must occur. Qualification certificates for affiliated agencies may be purchased to provide your officers rewarding their qualification scores. Agency affiliation is $95 for three years or $150 for five and comes with a subscription to one of four NRA publications. Click here for an application.

Range Development

The NRA's Range Development department has been providing support and service to both public, private and law enforcement ranges for quite some time. The NRA's Range Source Book is probably the most comprehensive compilation of information anywhere on building and improving both indoor and outdoor ranges. The NRA's Range Technical Team program provides extremely cost effective on-site assistance to range facilities who may need range planning assistance, procedural evaluations, range safety and/or design evaluations. And the NRA's Range Development & Operations Conferences are five-day conferences designed to bring some of the nation's experts in the field of range design, range construction, range operations and range management together in a forum to train range owners and operators of both existing and proposed range facilities. Issues such as lead, environmental sound, maintenance, cost analysis, and ventilation are but a small part of what is covered in the conference.

NRA Foundation Grant Program

Established in 1990, the NRA Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that raises tax deductible contributions in support of a wide range of firearm-related public interest activities of the National Rifle Association of America and other organizations that defend and foster the Second Amendment rights of all law-abiding Americans. The activities are designed to promote firearms and hunting safety, to enhance marksmanship skills of those participating in the shooting sports, and to educate the general public about firearms in their historic, technological, and artistic contest. Funds granted by the NRA Foundation benefit a variety of constituencies throughout the United States, including children, youth, women, individuals with physical disabilities, gun collectors, law enforcement officers, and hunters. Projects that are allowable under federal guidelines include, but are not limited to: range development or improvement, training, education, and safety.
