I already have a concealed weapon permit. Do I need a firearm endorsement from DJCS?

If you carry or have access to a firearm during the course of your duties in certain registered categories, you must have a firearm endorsement issued by DCJS to carry a firearm. This includes successful completion of training and submittal of the firearms endorsement application and fee.

Locksmiths and employees of an Electronic Security Services Business with the exception of alarm respondents are exempt from the requirement to have a firearm endorsement when such person carries with him a valid concealed handgun permit issued in accordance with 18.2-308 of the Code of Virginia.
