Grant Parish Sheriff’s Office Hosting Church Security Class

Press Release – The Grant Parish Sheriff’s Office is hosting an 8 hour church security class for any Grant Parish church that is interested in having members armed with a weapon in their church. To take this course you must have a concealed handgun permit. A concealed handgun class will be offered prior to this course and it is also 8 hours long. 

     We suggest that no more than 4 or 5 people be armed in each church. The fee for the concealed handgun course is $100 and the church security course is free.   Whoever is chosen to take the course must be in good physical and mental shape with no imparities.

     Each student will need to provide 100 rounds of ammunition for the concealed carry course and 300 rounds for the church security course, a holster, extra magazines, a notebook, hearing and eye protection.  If you already have the concealed permit, you do not have to go through the class again; you can attend just the church security class.  Please bring the gun that you are going to conceal to the class.

     Both classes will be held at Man Cave Archery on Highway 8 in Bentley.  The concealed carrying class will be held on January 27, 2018 at 7:30 a.m. and the church security course will be held on February 3, 2018 at 7:30 a.m.

     Man Cave Archery will have ammunition for purchase on the day of the class if needed.  Each class will be limited to 16 people.  Lunch will be provided by the Grant Parish Sheriff’s Office.
