The Citizen’s Firearm Safety Course will consist of an eight (8) hour block of instruction and demonstration on Saturday, May 06, 2017, from 8:00AM to 4:00PM. The class will be conducted at the Newton County Law Enforcement Training Center located at 15151 Alcovy Road Covington, GA., from 8:00 AM till lunch time. After you have gone to lunch, we will meet at the Sheriff’s Office Range located at 272 Lower River Road Covington, GA., for live fire exercises.
