The ORN Police Dept is offering a Concealed Handgun License course. See Det.Ford for more information 832/381-3223.

Dear Resident of Oak Ridge North;

The Oak Ridge North Police Department is offering Concealed Handgun License (CHL) courses to the residents. We encourage residents of the city to take advantage of the course to obtain their certification for a Concealed Handgun License. The course is conducted every four to five weeks and it consists of two four-hour evening blocks (6 pm to 10 pm on Thursday and Friday) and 8 am to noon on Saturday. The course costs $10 for residents, and includes notary service and fingerprinting. Students will be responsible for obtaining their color passport photographs prior to the course. Additionally, students will be responsible for their range fees, as well as ammunition.

This is not a “Handgun 101” class. Students will be required to be familiar with the operation, maintenance, and safe handling of their firearms. The course will cover the laws pertaining to the CHL program, the responsibilities of the CHL holder, and the mechanics of dispute resolution, among other topics. Also, the student will shoot a fifty-round qualification prior to being awarded a certificate. In addition to meeting some of your neighbors and some of your police officers, the course will provide you with new perspectives on self-defense issues.

For more information or to reserve a seat, please call Detective Jim Ford at 832/381-3223 weekdays from 8 am to 4 pm. The classes are restricted to eight students per class. We hope to see you there.
