Law Enforcement, Military and Security 

The NRA established a Law Enforcement Division in 1960 specifically to provide the law enforcement community with a means to certify law enforcement firearm instructors. We also offer law enforcement firearm competitions, as we believe competition is a direct extension of training. Competitions consist of the National Police Shooting Championships as well as a new multi-gun law enforcement competition called the Tactical Police Competition, or TPC.
