Obstacles are what we see when we take our eyes off the goal.

Too many youngsters get their hands on firearms without proper supervision. Keep your guns secure from ALL unauthorized persons! Lets stop burying children - PLEASE (jal.fast@yahoo.com)

We'd all be a lot safer if HR218 applied to LEO's anywhere, anytime, including airplanes.  I've had the TSA's flying armed class but can't carry unless on an assignment for my dept., and our fugutive division always takes care of those jobs.

You can carry a firearm, as a LEO, on a flight. You need to get approval from the TSA. My PD has a policy written on it and the Chief needs to send a request to TSA on a PD letterhead.  I'm sure it would be official business only.

Only federal LEO's are authorized to carry on a plane at any time any place within the US. All other agencies must have writen documentation from their department authorizing them to carry and having the need to carry. As a local you can check your weapon. I would never do it, but you can. If you do do it, i would tear it down first.

Departmental letterhead is no longer approved for carrying armed.  Local agencies now have to go through NLETS to carry armed.

TSA Regulations lay out the situations where a law enforcement officer may carry a firearms on board.  They are strict and very narrow.

  I should have posted this comment :    Federal Law Enforcement >> Anyone still out there from Redstone way back when?


My Dad always carried on flights.  It was allowed for Fed. Agents on most airlines (if I remember correctly) .  About 10 years ago, when walking onto a plane, the stewardess saw my badge pendant and asked "are you carrying?".  I said I wasn't and being retired I just thought was a moot point.  She corrected me and said it would have been OK, as long as the Pilot knew.  But now, I think its too much responsibility for this retired officer to take on.  Too much red tape, probably being treated like a perp. instead of someone who could be there to help.


Anyone else familiar with this?

You will also need to complete the "Law enforcement officer flying armed" in service training and be able to produce proof of course completion.

Not only you have to be on Official Police Business, but your Department must send the TSA a request via the N-LETS Sysytem for Law Enforcement. They will not accept any Dept. letter heads any more....The Flying Armed Class only takes a few miuntes about the type of ammunition that you must carry while in flight and the consequnce of firing a weapon on aboard an aircraft so not to penatrate the aircrafts fuselodge...I hope this helps.......................

Were i come from, The Netherlands, its not allowed. Only our Air Marshals can take their gun onboard the flight when they are on duty. Personnaly i think you need to be trained to carry/use youre weapon on an aircraft. It need special training.
