BC Sheriff’s Office to hold firearms qualification shoot for retired officers

The Baxter County Sheriff's Office will conduct a firearms qualification shoot for retired law enforcement officers Friday morning at 8:30. The shoot will be held at the firing range on County Road 782 off Arkansas Highway 201 North.

The cost is $10 and payable in advance. The retired officer must bring his or her own firearm, and certain restrictions apply. Any retired law enforcement officers interested in participating will need to visit the sheriff's office to register in advance by filling out a written application and sign a release and waiver of liability form.

The course was developed and selected by the sheriff's certified firearms instructors. Officers successfully passing the course will be issued an official card from the sheriff's office attesting to have satisfactorily completed the course. Retired officers will not be issued a qualification card from the Arkansas Commission on Law Enforcement Standards since the Baxter County Sheriff's Office does not participate in that process.

For more information, contact the sheriff's office at 870-425-7000.
