IROCC is a program of the Illinois Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board. The IROCC office issues firearm qualification cards for two specific entities.
Qualified Retired Law Enforcement Officers
The primary qualification document issued by the IROCC office is for retired law enforcement officers. This document is issued under Federal H.R. 218 “Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act of 2004,” and improvements, and Illinois Public Act 094-0103.
Illinois Department of Corrections Parole Agents and Supervisors
The IROCC office also issues a document for active duty Illinois parole agents called the Illinois Parole Agent Concealed Carry card, or IPACC. This permit is issued under Illinois Public Act 096-0230. For information pertaining to the IPACC card please see the specific IPACC page. It can be found here.
