What are the qualifications for individuals other than active and retired law enforcement officers?
Under the IFR, individuals other than active and retired LEOs in good standing must meet qualifications established by TSA, in coordination with the Federal Air Marshal Service (FAMS). At a minimum, these individuals must not be under the influence of alcohol or another intoxicating or hallucinatory drug or substance and must not be prohibited by Federal law from receiving a firearm. Under current ASO program guidelines, such an individual must also be a qualified former LEO in good standing with a minimum of four years law enforcement experience as defined by TSA.
