Welcome to the official website of the Georgia Association of Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors (GALEFI)


Since 1990, our focus has been set on providing quality firearms training and access to current information regarding available law enforcement equipment and supplies for firearms instructors and other members of the law enforcement community throughout the State of Georgia and abroad.  Please feel free to visit our site often in order to remain apprised of the training offered on a continuing basis by our trainers. 


I would encourage you to consider becoming either an active or associate member or a sponsor of our organization. Your support will help us grow and enhance our ability to "Train the Trainers". Membership is open to all members of the law enforcement community as well as civilians with an interest in law enforcement training.  Whether you choose to attend a local "Hands on Training Session (HOTS), one of our instructor certification courses or the next Annual Training Conference (ATC), I'm looking forward to training with you soon.


Each year our conference training brings some excellent instructors in to provide a range of training topics. Many of these instructors provide breakout sessions with hands on teaching for pistol, rifle, shotgun and other topics. The instructors are from across the country and sometimes other countries, some being well known and recognized as firearms experts. The professional level of training you can receive at the conference is advanced and seldom matched in Georgia.


For the cost of membership and the conference fee you receive quality training, exchange of ideas among peers, friendships that last a life time and much more. GALEFI is an excellent investment for all of us as we continue to develop professional law enforcement officers in the State of Georgia. Please join us and reap the benefits for yourself.


We offer three categories of membership:


Active - Law Enforcement Firearms Instructors


Associate - Law Enforcement or civilians with an interest in firearms training 


Sponsor - Companies or individuals who supply the Law Enforcement Community with firearms or law enforcement related products


Applications to join GALEFI are found under the membership tab of the website. If you have any questions regarding our organization, please contact me at James.Perry@westgatech.edu.
