HR218 Notifications  3/29/2022


March 29, 2022

Dear Retired Sworn Member of the Nebraska State Patrol:

It is that time again to send a reminder for you to qualify, or re-qualify, to carry a concealed weapon by meeting the criteria outlined in House Resolution 218; the “Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act of 2004.”  As a reminder, HR218 is a discretionary program, and the Nebraska State Patrol requires that retirees adhere to the same policy that applies to current employees – Policy 01-06-01:

For those retirees within the state needing to re-qualify or renew this year, the retiree will respond to the Range Officer regarding the date that they will attend the range to qualify for HR218.

Prior to qualification, you will need to contact NSP to receive the two forms needed for out-of-state qualification.  
An e-mail request can be sent to, and the forms will be e-mailed back to you.
Once you have completed your range session, e-mail the completed forms back to the address above.
The 617R form with your HR218 will be signed off by NSP, and then sent electronically via e-mail to the retiree.

Retiree ID will need to be checked by the Range Officer for expiration.  

*If your ID is expired contact Mary Jones with the NSP Training Academy either by phone at 308-218-6640 or by e-mail at*
