IALEFI Mission

The International Association of Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors® is a membership organization which was organized in 1981 by a group of concerned firearms instructors. They recognized the need for a way to update and modernize the instruction and teaching techniques being used to train the majority of law enforcement officers.

IALEFI® is an independent, non-profit Association supported by dues and managed by a Board of Directors elected from among the active members.

In a few short years IALEFl® has grown to include in its membership all facets of law enforcement firearms instructors from federal, state, county, local, and private agencies. 

Additionally, foreign countries are represented from as close as our Canadian neighbors to the north, Brazil to our south, and as far as Hong Kong to our west, and Europe and South Africa to our east. 

IALEFI® is truly an international organization that addresses the universal problems encountered by all professionals engaged in the field of firearms instruction.

Aims and Purposes: As defined by the bylaws, IALEFI® was organized and is dedicated to: Encouraging the development and operation of training programs to firearms instructors among law enforcement, security, criminal justice, and investigative agencies and organizations, and encouraging the development, improvement and conduct of programs to meet those needs, and conducting an Annual Training Conference to provide members with education in the latest techniques and technologies available to the law enforcement firearms instructor.






To those who have served, and are serving now,  thank you from those of us who sleep under the blanket of security you provide. IALEFI® has long recognized and appreciated our members who are either active duty military personnel, or, military reservist.   In a way of expressing our gratitude to those who serve, we would like to acknowledge those individuals in this special area of our web site.
