[ARCHIVED] Police Offer Firearm Safety Classes

Firearm Safety Class

The James City County Police Department will be offering free firearm safety classes to the public in September and October. Each one-session class will cover basic safety, handling, storage and 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.

This course meets the requirement for the “Documentation of Proof of Handgun Competency” as part of the VA Concealed Handgun Permit application process, and a certificate of attendance will be provided to attendees.

Classes will be held on Sept. 15, 9-11:30 a.m. and Oct. 15, 6:30-9 p.m. All classes will be held at the Law Enforcement Center at 4600 Opportunity Way.

Pre-registration is required and must be completed online.

Project ChildSafe provides free gun locks that will be available to participants.

Contact Master Officer Alan McDowell at 757-603-6026 with any questions about the course and Stephanie Williams at 757-259-5173 with any registration questions.
