Please review the following message from the Illinois Law Enforcement Training and Standards Board:

The changes of HB 4667 (PA 102-779) afford new firearm privileges to state and county correctional officers who meet certain qualifications. The Board has asked the Attorney General’s Office for an opinion regarding their interpretation of these new privileges and guidance as to the implementation of any changes required to the Board’s training components or IROCC program. Until such response is received, we believe that the privileges are different and distinct from the IROCC program and are afforded without the need for any documentation to be issued from the Board. Applicants without the requisite 10 years of appointment in a law enforcement position and whose firearm requalifications cannot be verified by Board records, will continue to be ineligible for the IROCC program. 

At this time, we are not accepting applications from correctional officers from the Department of Corrections, or deputies and county correctional officers.

Information updates will be posted on the IROCC website as they become available.



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.
