Extreme Risk Protection Order


Extreme Risk Protection Orders are meant to save lives by authorizing courts to temporarily prevent a person in crisis from accessing firearms. It allows law enforcement, or concerned family members and friends to intervene before the warning signs turn into tragedy. Its intent is that family members and others concerned that an individual who is suicidal or otherwise in crisis will use a firearm or other deadly weapon to seriously injure or kill himself or herself or another person.  Those that are subject to these orders are required to give all their deadly weapons and their concealed handgun license to a law enforcement agency, gun dealer, or someone else who can lawfully hold them within 24 hours. Respondents are then not allowed to possess the weapons until the order is cancelled (terminated or dismissed) by a judge or the order expires.

Any family member, household member, intimate partner, or law enforcement can apply for an ERPO. It must be filed in the county where the Respondent lives and filed at the Circuit Court courthouse. There is no cost associated with filing an Extreme Risk Protection Order.
