🚨 BREAKING: the LEOSA Reform Act has been introduced in the House!

"Law enforcement officers are targets—in uniform and out, on-duty and off. The Law Enforcement Officers’ Safety Act (LEOSA) provides that qualified active and retired officers can protect themselves and others even if off duty or after retirement,” said Patrick Yoes National FOP President. “The LEOSA Reform Act doesn’t increase the number of officers who can carry under the statute. Instead, it makes sure our officers are physically safe and protected from legal jeopardy by closing existing loopholes and harmonizing State and Federal laws.”


Tell Congress to support the brave men and women of law enforcement by passing this critical legislation. Click here to contact your Representative: https://www.votervoice.net/FOP/campaigns/81294/respond

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE | 24 FEBRUARY 2021

🔺 FOP Priority Bill “LEOSA Reform Act” Introduced in House 🔺


Patrick Yoes, National President of the Fraternal Order of Police, applauded the news that Representative Donald J. Bacon (R-NE) reintroduced the “LEOSA Reform Act” with Representative E.R. “Henry” Cuellar (D-TX). The bill, H.R. 1210, has two additional original cosponsors—Representatives John H. Rutherford (R-FL) and Peter A. Stauber (R-MN).

“Law enforcement officers are targets—in uniform and out, on-duty and off. The Law Enforcement Officers’ Safety Act (LEOSA) provides that qualified active and retired officers can protect themselves and others even if off duty or after retirement,” Yoes said. “The LEOSA Reform Act doesn’t increase the number of officers who can carry under the statute. Instead, it makes sure our officers are physically safe and protected from legal jeopardy by closing existing loopholes and harmonizing State and Federal laws.”

The bill amends the LEOSA, which exempts qualified active and retired law enforcement officers from local and State prohibitions on the carriage of concealed firearms, to ensure that these officers can carry in the same venues as civilian concealed carry permit holders such as schools, national parks, and “common carriers.” The bill also extends the exemption to magazine capacity and would allow active and retired law enforcement officers to access services in U.S. Post Offices, Social Security Administration offices, Veterans Affairs offices, or other Federal facilities without disarming or securing their firearms elsewhere. It would also allow States to affirmatively act to extend the period between training certifications for qualified retired law enforcement officers from 12 months to up to 36 months.

“I am very proud of the work that Representatives Bacon and Cuellar and the FOP have done together on this bill,” said Yoes. “I look forward to that partnership continuing as we move this bill forward.”

The Fraternal Order of Police is the largest law enforcement labor organization in the United States, with more than 356,000 members.

Prayers Needed!

Dear Emerald Society Members,

I recently was informed that our Society's Chaplain, Fr. Terry Brennan, has been diagnosed with Stage IV Glioblastoma, a type of brain cancer. Unfortunately, surgical intervention is not an option. Fr. Brennan has elected to fight this cancer aggressively with a combination of radiation and oral chemotherapy. Fr. Brennan's treatment will focus on maintaining his quality of life, and gaining length of life.

Fr. Brennan has been a dedicated servant to our Emerald Society, his Community, and his Faith for decades. He needs our deepest prayers as he prepares to enter into this fight. Please take a moment to pray for Fr. Brennan. I'm sure that he would love to hear from you as well. Please send all cards or correspondence to:

Terry Brennan, S.J.
St Camillas Jesuit Community

Wauwatosa, WI 53226

Sincerely,

Joshua Morgan
President

Prayer of St. Brigid.
Brigid of the Mantle, encompass us,
Lady of the Lambs, protect us,
Keeper of the Hearth, kindle us.
Beneath your mantle, gather us,
And restore us to memory.
Mothers of our mother, Foremothers strong.
Guide our hands in yours,
Remind us how to kindle the hearth.
To keep it bright, to preserve the flame.
Your hands upon ours, Our hands within yours,
To kindle the light, Both day and night.
The Mantle of Brigid about us,
The Memory of Brigid within us,
The Protection of Brigid keeping us
From harm, from ignorance, from heartlessness.
This day and night,
From dawn till dark, From dark till dawn.

Rest In Peace
