Update on HB 4667

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.
