LEOSA Credential Renewals Opened 1 May 2019
By April Hamilton
The DCS - LEOSA team has begun preparing for upcoming card renewals! They will begin accepting Service Requests for renewals on MAY 1ST! Current card holders can begin applying for renewal up to SIX MONTHS before the expiration date with the Early Bird renewal program and discounted pricing! Early Bird pricing ($100) will be applied to renewals submitted 4-6 months before the expiration date. Applications received within 3 months and up to the expiration date will require the full renewal price ($125). Renewals will require updated personal information, a new passport-style photo, Endorsement letter for 926B cards, and new FBI Identity History Summary for Air Force 926C card holders.
NOTE: The issuance/expiration date of renewed cards will be the same month/day as the initial card unless the application is received AFTER the initial issuance date.
In addition to including online renewals, the automated LEOSAOnline.com website has been under major construction and has been relaunched! It is now open to all LEOSA applicants: Air Force, Army and Navy!
The new platform provides an updated workflow that is more efficient and user-friendly. All account information and application questions will be answered directly within a LEOSAOnline.com account, and digital uploading is required for all photos, application documents and service requests. The updated website will allow users to log in and out of the accounts without losing information, and the new ‘Status’ feature shows when the application is submitted to DCS, being reviewed and completed! DCS believes these new features will increase user-friendliness and greatly improve the application process for everyone!
