James City County Police Department is offering free firearm safety classes to the public this fall. 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.

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

Pre-registration is required and must be completed online.

Dates of the one-session classes follow:

  • Sept. 9, 6:30-9 p.m.
  • Oct. 19, 9-11:30 a.m.
  • Nov. 4, 6:30-9 p.m.
  • Dec. 7, 9-11:30 a.m.

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