You need more than just a permit to carry. In PA you are required to take a pshycological and physical exam. You need a background check and fingerprints and also must take and pass the PA act 235 certification program. A license to carry is not valid to carry a firearm while on the job.

Rivera1972 You are 100% wrong there are 2 carry permits in PA one is ACT 235 which allows you to carry it at work and the other is a Normal CCW permit. Anyone can get a carry permit in NJ but you will have to know a judge to get one. NY is another place you can get a permit to carry very easly unless you live in NYC then you will have problems to carry in NYC. I have a permit to carry in PA,NY FL and 31 other states. but I also have a 50 state carry permit which is also Known as HR 218 or LEOSA.

cohen pa in Elverson, Pennsylvania said: How and where did you get a 50 state permit?

To fall under HR 218 also known as LEOSA you have to be either a retired police officer or currently working as a police officer and have to have your badge and department ID card on you and you can not have had any kind OF IA investgations also you have to contact the police departments where you will be travling. also with HR 218 you CAN NOT use it for anything other than self defense you CAN NOT use it any other way. you don't have powers to arrest in any other state or outside of you police agency area. and its 50 states you can not carry in or near washington DC even if you are a police officer. you can not carry onboard aircraft with out being on official business. the state of FL CCW permit is valid in 34 states but be advised that a few of those states will not honor FL ccw permit if you are a non resident of florida. PA and FL have reciproity agreements.

Not true, LEOSA applies even in DC. Hopefully someday soon it will apply to all law abiding citizens as well- Chicago, DC, and many other places where people have felt defenseless for years.

I would not consider the "Act 235" a carry permit, it is a certification course.
The "Act" is for work purposes only and does not entitle you to carry outside of work.

Also, PA does not have a carry permit, we have a License To Carry a Firearm "LTCF".

I have my LTCF and I am also a Certified Agent (Act 235 certified).

I may have got the type wrong but in terms act 235 is a "Carry Permit" for work only and LTCF is a CCW permit just a different name i wasn't trying to be politcaly correct.

As a retired NJ officer in good standing with a retired permit to carry in NJ, do I need a 235 card to work security in PA? I was told I was OK with HR218. In reading the PA State Police website, retired officers (no state specified) just do the renewal part of 235, but it also says in another FAQ that no out of state accepted (does that mean law enforcement too?).

Yes you must have a act235 to work in security in pa. Your carry permit won't do. As far as getting an act235 living in N.J. I don't know but I can find out for you if you like.

Yes you need the act 235 card to work in pa. it very easy to obtain but a little costly as far as I am understanding you do not need to do the training but I think you have so many years from retirement to get it without needing the training. also in NJ you do not need a carry permit if you are a retired police officer as long as you have your ID card and badge you are good. alot of police officers are not very versed in the HR218 (LEOSA). your best bet would be to contact the PA state police and ask they will know more than what is on the website. yes you can live in NJ and have a ACT 235 I got mine while I lived in NJ all you need to do is go to the website download the paperwork fill it out bring it to a PSP station get fingerprinted turn in 2 passport photos and the required fees then make the appointments for the physic and physical and the fees for that and the best place is the philly arch and gun club in philly.

In Pennsylvania if you're already Act 120 certified then you can get a waiver for the Act 235's 40 hour course but you are still required to take a physical (a hearing an vision exam), a 300 question personality test and a short interview with a psychologist.

I am a retired Jersey Trooper and have my retired ID and badge, but I was still required to apply for a retired police officer's permit to carry a handgun, and must renew the application annually. Two qualification shoots must be done during the year, at least four months apart.

Is there a Statute or any type of document that says... You can use HR 218 for work? Off-duty or Retired LEO can use HR 218 to carry a firearm for security Armed work? Can't really just take the word of NJSP over the phone.

Or is HR 218 and NJ Permit to Carry two different things? Since HR 218 requires only a once a year Firearms Qualifications but in NJ according to NJSP they require Qualifications twice a year! Why the difference if HR 218 is Federal Law? Why is NJ able to change requirements?

Hope someone can answer this for me! Thanks!
