Who can file for a risk protection order?

Only a law enforcement officer or agency can file for a risk protection order.1

If you are a person who is concerned about the safety of someone else but cannot file to have his/her firearms removed, you may be able to speak to a law enforcement officer or agency to let them know of your concern and ask that they file for a risk protection order to have the firearms removed.
