Q: I have a question regarding police academy cadet/recruits purchasing firearms for official duty on Police Department Letterhead and not completing a 4473. The cadets/recruits are going through the “police academy” but do not have the power to arrest until they complete their training and have started field training. I do not feel this meets the qualifications of a sworn police officer and they would need a permit to carry or permit to purchase under Minnesota law to purchase a firearm for official duty. I can supply the letter that was presented to us for review by a local police department.
