HR 218 Check List









The Otsego County Sheriff’s Office in conjunction with the Otsego County Law Enforcement Academy will be conducting handgun qualification courses for former officers (Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act, H.R. 218).  The course of fire is the law enforcement qualification course published by the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services.

 After firing a passing score the former officer will be issued a HR 218 photo-ID card.  The card states that the eligible individual passed the qualification course, the date, the type of firearm used (revolver or semi-automatic or both) and a phone number for the Otsego County Sheriffs Communications Center, manned 24/7, that can be called to verify the information shown on the card.
