Marshall County Sheriff Matthew Hassel announced Monday that due to an abundance of interest in the Firearm Safety Course organized last month the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department will be providing another course this year on November 5th

The Firearm Safety Course in September had over 50 community members attend.  In the previous press release, Sheriff Hassel noted, “Staring July 1st, 2022 there were several changes to Indiana Law that went into effect for the State of Indiana.  One of the major areas of change was related to firearms and laws surrounding the carrying of firearms.” 

The Marshall County Sheriff’s Department strongly supports the citizens of this community and their Rights outlined in the Constitution of the United States.  The Marshall County Sheriff’s Department is taking a step further from supporting to offering education to the community.    

The Marshall County Sheriff’s Department will be hosting a second Firearms Safety Course on November 5th, at 9:00 am.  The course will begin with classroom training related to safety concepts, legal issues, handling, storage, carrying, and fundamentals of shooting.  The class will then break for lunch and meet at a local firearms range to practice with certified instructors. 

As in years past, this course is free of any cost. For questions and to sign up, please contact the Records Division of the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department at 574-936-3187.  Further instructions will be sent out to those who signed up the week prior to the course.
