Shooting Range Usage for VA Police Yearly Qualifications


The VA New York Harbor Healthcare System provides quality health care to veterans using the abilities of all employees supported by our commitment to education and research.

The VA Police is the uniformed law enforcement service of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, responsible for the protection and security of the VA Medical Centers and other facilities such as Outpatient Clinics (OPC) and Community Based Outpatient Clinics (CBOC) operated by the VA. The VA Police have several divisions and operate separately but alongside the VA Law Enforcement Training Center (VA LETC) under the umbrella of the Office of Security and Law Enforcement. The primary role of VA Police is to serve as a protective uniformed police force in order to deter and prevent crime, maintain order, and investigate crimes (ranging from summonses to felony offenses) which may have occurred within the jurisdiction of the Department or its federal assets. Some cases are investigated in conjunction with agents from the Office of the Inspector General (VA OIG).

The VA Police are an armed, federal law enforcement and protective service entity that operates in and around the various Veterans Affairs Medical Centers, National Cemeteries and other VA facilities located throughout the whole of United States to include Puerto Rico and the United States Virgin Islands. Among others, the VA Police are a specialized federal law enforcement agency, whose officers have full police powers derived from statutory authority to enforce all federal laws, VA rules and regulations, and to make arrests on VA controlled property whether owned or leased. In the event of an active shooter the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Police need to be properly equipped to safeguard Veteran patients, employees and visitors.

Per VA Directive 0720, Veterans Affairs Police Officers must qualify with the department firearm four times per year for regular qualification and low light qualification.

Because of this required firearm training, range time is needed on a yearly schedule. The VA New York Harbor Healthcare System has no shooting ranges on property. In order to qualify, the VA Police must purchase indoor/outdoor range hours from two ranges in the tri-state area.
