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 April 4 and April 26 from 6:30-9 p.m. Both classes will be held at the Law Enforcement Center at 4600 Opportunity Way.
