Firearms Safety Course: Concealed Weapons Class


The Polk County Sheriff’s Office will host a Firearms Safety Course/Concealed Weapons Class on Saturday, June 29th, from 8:00 am – Noon. RESERVE YOUR SPOT NOW for June 29th – CALL 863-298-6242.

If registration for the class fills up, a second afternoon class will be added for 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm.

Cost of the class is $45; proceeds go to Polk Sheriff’s Charities, Inc., and the cost is non-refundable.

This class fulfills the requirements by the FL Department of Agriculture need to obtain a concealed weapons permit. Even though permitless-carry in Florida went into effect in 2023, there are still benefits to having a permit (reciprocity in states which don’t allow for concealed carry without a permit, and permit holders are exempt from the 3-day waiting period when purchasing new firearms).

Any questions about the CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION, please call Sergeant Bennett or Sergeant Caratsole at the PCSO Training Section at 863-534-7200, during normal office hours.

***YOU MUST CALL 863-298-6242, during normal business hours (Mon-Fri, 8-5) to reserve your seat. When you call, you will be given further instruction about where to go for the training.***

*we will have handguns available for the hands-on portion of the course, but we prefer you bring your own if possible.
