Default LEO Long Gun Purchase and 4473

I have a question regarding the LEO buying a standard long gun. I see the area in the DROS system for 10 day waiting period exemption.

Do they need a letter to make use of this?

Do I call in an FBI NICS check Or do I use box 23 and their LEO ID?

You need a letter from the department to exempt them from the waiting period. You still need to submit the DROS.
