Based upon information recently received from the armed services, ALL veterans of the armed forces who plan to attend any future LEOSA class at the Maryland Police and Corrections Training Commission will be required to present a valid “Qualified DOD Law Enforcement Officer” card from their respective branch of the military. This is necessary to ensure service members from all branches have been properly vetted and meet all requirements of 18 USC 926C. We have learned that information contained on DD-214’s does not always give a full or accurate account of the member’s service record, or lack thereof, as it pertains to whether or not the minimum requirements have been met

This card is required regardless of any documents or paperwork provided on previous training dates. LEOSA training will not be offered to retired or separated members of the armed services who do not have it on their person at the time of training. New students will be required to possess a valid card before being scheduled for their first training date. If you need further information or have questions on obtaining a card, renewing your card or any other issues, please visit the Defense Consulting Services website at Further information may be found at:
