The James City County Police Department will be offering two free Firearm Safety classes to the public. Each one session class will cover basic safety, handling, storage and basic laws related to carrying a concealed handgun in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The class does not include hands-on training and personal firearms should be left at home in a secure location. A certificate of attendance will be provided to attendees.
The classes will be held on Aug. 11 and Sept. 9 at the Law Enforcement Center at 4600 Opportunity Way from 6:30-9 p.m.
Pre-registration is required as class size is limited. Contact Master Officer Alan McDowell at 757-603-6026 to register.
Grant funding received from the National Rifle Association Foundation and Project ChildSafe was used to purchase class materials and gunlocks for this free class.
