Retired Law Enforcement Concealed Handgun Permit

In 2014, after reviewing the applicable Federal Statutes, the Adams County Sheriff’s Office ceased the practice of issuing permits in order to comply with Federal Law. The laws only specify that an honorably separated Law Enforcement Officer need only carry retirement/separation credentials issued by the agency he or she separated from, and proof of handgun qualification within the previous one year period to carry a concealed handgun.

​If you are honorably separated from a Colorado Law Enforcement agency, C.R.S. 24-33.5-112 mandates issuance of retirement credentials to retirees in good standing. If you separated from an out-of-state agency, you need to obtain “good standing” credentials to be covered by HR218.
