LEGAL PROTECTION PLAN, LPP/L.E.O.S.A
Beginning January 2016 an ID card will be issued. Open enrollment is year round, however, it is not pro-rated, and coverage is for the calendar year. The 2016 PBA Legal Protection Plan Application can be printed from our Downloads page along with a copy of the most recent revision of LEOSA/H.R.218, as Amended by the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013 (Jan 2, 2013).
A recent court case concerning LEOSA involved a NJ resident who was a retired LEO from another State. He was denied a carry permit in the State of NJ and the appeal citing LEOSA was dismissed. Although the Superior Court of NJ agreed that the State had the authority to issue a permit to carry, it was under no obligation to do so. LEOSA has been written broadly and still gives States individual rights.
You must comply with the laws of the State you plan to carry in. This decision confirms that NJ is “under no obligation” under LEOSA. NJ has the right to restrict the issuance of a permit, age and qualifications standards, ammunition, magazine capacity and still be in compliance with LEOSA.
We are formulating a veteran database for the local. If you are a veteran and wish to be included contact President Tom Lombardi or Delegate Jim Toma with your branch of service and the dates you served.
We are posting a direct link to the State PBA website for updates to changing legislation affecting both current and retired members click HERE
