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:

“Department approved handguns will be those handguns of .380 auto to .45 caliber inclusive with no less than a 2” barrel and no more than a 6 ½ “ barrel, is a double action pistol or revolver that functions within factory specifications and which can be evaluated and approved as safe by State Patrol Armorers.  Weapons must be capable of firing at least five shots without reloading.  Derringers will not be departmentally approved.”

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

1.       Retiree will complete the 617R form while at range on Range Officer’s computer.

          The HR218 card can be cut out of the form to carry.  Retiree will only receive the HR218 certificate if they have qualified at range. HR218 renewal will be required yearly.
