POLICY:
The authorization to carry a firearm and related equipment is an awesome responsibility. Today, more than ever before in law enforcement history, police officers must be thoroughly qualified and certified to carry firearms and other related equipment. Therefore, this policy establishes procedures for the carrying of duty and non-duty weapons, authorized ammunition, holsters, auxiliary weapons, firearms qualifications, and safety rules. The care and cleaning of firearms will be outlined within this policy. The need to maintain and care for a firearm is critical.
The Firearms - Safety Rules are found in APPENDIX P.

SECTION 1. GENERAL PROVISIONS
Applicability: This policy applies to all law enforcement personnel in New Jersey effective March 1, 1991.
Suppression Notice: This policy supersedes the Attorney General's Directive of December, 1985 and replaces those portions of the 21 county policies currently in place, as indicated in this policy.
Summary: This policy delineates the Attorney General's requirements on firearms requalification by establishing standards for the conduct of semi annual firearms requalification and associated training.
Purpose: This policy is intended to establish a uniform set of standards for semi annual firearms re-qualification for any weapon, including a shotgun, which is issued or authorized for use both on and off duty. It identifies specific courses of fire that meet firearm requalification requirements. It identifies the minimum score and training necessary to meet the requalification standards as set forth in this manual.
On June 17, 1985, the Attorney General issued a directive requiring that all law enforcement personnel re-qualify with their firearms at least twice a year pursuant to plans submitted to and approved by the county prosecutor. This directive retains the twice a year re-qualification standard, augments the minimum standard now set forth in N.J.S.A. 2C:39 6J, and establishes a set of standards and requirements for re-qualification.
