The latest Cherokee County Citizen’s Firearms Class was once again a huge success as more than 25 local residents signed up to take part.
That annual event, sponsored by Sheriff Jeff Shaver and District Attorney Mike O’Dell in partnership with Gadsden State Community College/the Cherokee Campus, covers an array of important topics including – accurate facts regarding firearms laws in the state of Alabama; how to safely, and legally carry firearms; how to obtain a concealed carry permit; and hands-on safety instructions from firearms experts.
After that class – WEIS Radio News spoke with Sheriff’s Office Chief Investigator Tony Monroy about this year’s turnout, how things went overall – and that upcoming firing range visit:
This is just one more way that the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office reaches out to the citizens of Cherokee County – in an effort to let everyone know having an open line of communication is important for both law enforcement and law-abiding citizens. The Sheriff’s Office is conducting a series of Community Meetings across Cherokee County with the next being set for this Thursday at Gaylesville Town Hall starting at 6:00pm – that’s being held in the Sheriff’s Office sub-station at the four-way stop and the public is encouraged to attend.
