HR-218 Enrollment

HR-218 is the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act of 2004. It exempts active and retired law enforcement officers with firearm certification credentials from local laws (with some exceptions) prohibiting concealed firearms.

FOP Legal Defense Plan offers HR-218 coverage for FOP active and retired law enforcement officers. Legal defense coverage will be provided for civil or criminal claims associated with HR-218. The annual coverage limit is $25,000 at a cost of $50 per participant.

If you are an active officer covered by the FOP Legal Defense Plan, coverage for the HR-218 is automatically included. Retired officers are not eligible for participation in the FOP Legal Defense Plan, and therefore would need to purchase HR-218 coverage separately from the Plan.

To submit an HR-218 Application, please fill out the form at the link below. You will receive your ID card, plan booklet and certificate of participation within 30 days after the approval of your application.
