Sheriff’s office offers two citizen firearms safety classes

The Clallam County Sheriff’s Office offers two Citizen Firearms Safety Courses in November.

Part of the goal of the classes is to enhance the positive relationship between our law enforcement officers and residents, law enforcement officials said.

The courses are designed to familiarize citizens with the use of firearms and firearm safety through the use of a firearms simulator. The simulator is an interactive Use of Force and Firearms Simulation system using real firearms that have been converted to a laser system.

Students will be placed into the role of a police officer responding to a scene and confronting a “shoot/no-shoot” scenario.

This allows citizens to develop a better understanding of the situations law enforcement officers face on a daily basis and the split second decisions they must make, sheriff’s office officials said.

Classes are held 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 4, and Saturday, Nov. 8, in the County Courthouse Emergency Operations Center.

Classes are limited to 12 students per class; registration is required and attendees must agree to a background check and sign a release of liability form.

Pre-registration is required. Contact Lorraine Shore at 360-417-2262 or lshore@co.clallam.wa.us for information to register for one of the classes.
