Last Saturday, March 3rd, we had our 10th Concealed Carry Permit class. We have trained around 400 Virginia residents since we started holding these trainings last year. The Sheriff’s Office would like to thank everyone that has taken our training so far. We would also like to thank our instructors for taking time on their off time to put these classes on for our citizens Major Byron Ashbrook, Deputy Billy Nichols and Deputy Darrell Dickenson. We would also like to thank Sheriff Newman for offering these classes to the citizens at no cost for the training. A big thanks to Washington County Circuit Court Clerks for coming in at the end of each class to file all the Washington County residents permit paperwork saving them a trip to the courthouse. We have two more classes scheduled before summer, April 7, 2018 and May 5, 2018. We have a few seats still available in both these classes and they will be filled in a first come, first serve basis. If you would like to sign up or want more information on our CCW classes please call Deputy Darrell Dickenson at 276-676-6008. More classes will be scheduled at a later date for later on this year.
