Out of concern and safety for all of our participants, IROCC has cancelled all shoots through April 30th. Scheduling for qualification shoots is currently suspended. Once we have information regarding upcoming dates and locations all eligible participants that are currently being processed, will receive an updated schedule to choose a date and location to attend a shoot.
Please keep in mind, there is no grace period after your current card expires. Your IROCC card is a qualification card for Federal Law H.R. 218 Law Enforcement Officer Safety Act. We do not have any authority to make such changes. If something does change, we will post this information immediately.
The IROCC office will have limited hours until further notice.
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.
