The James City County Police Department is 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 Oct. 26 from 6:30-9 p.m. and Nov. 21 from 9-11:30 a.m. Both classes will be held at the Law Enforcement Center at 4600 Opportunity Way.
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.
