James City County 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 May, June and July. 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.

Pre-registration is required and must be completed online.

All classes will be held at the Law Enforcement Center at 4600 Opportunity Way.

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.
