On July 22, 2004, Congress passed and the President signed the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act of 2004 (the "Act"), Pub. L. No. 108-277, 118 Stat. 865 (2004), codified at 18 U.S.C. §§ 926B and 926C. With certain limitations and conditions, the Act exempts active and retired "qualified law enforcement officers" ("qualified LEOs") from state laws and local ordinances prohibiting the carrying of concealed weapons.

The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) is authorized to provide photographic identification to retired/retiring TIGTA Special Agents and retired Internal Revenue Service Inspection Service (IRS-IS) Inspectors. This policy is contained in Chapter 200-100, "Issuance of Retired Law Enforcement Photographic Identification [DOC]," of the TIGTA Operations Manual. Questions regarding this policy should be emailed to retiredLEOidentification@tigta.treas.gov.
