As a rule do Auxiliary, special and Reserve officers get a retired ID if they serve 15 plus years or get hurt on the job and have to retire??

I'm just curious has anyone come across a person from another state with an Id like this carrying a firearm under HR 218.

What would you do if you came across such an individual???

The only officers who qualify are those full time officers who are retired with benefits according to the federal regulations. They must also qualify with their weapons annually and have the id specify they are qualified by their department.

`(3)(A) before such retirement, was regularly employed as a law enforcement officer for an aggregate of 15 years or more; or
