The Benton County Sheriff's Department says the class is open to the public and will take place at the Knights of Columbus, located at 31687 Hwy 83 in Warsaw. The free class will be held from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.

The Benton County Sheriff's Office says they 'receive questions weekly on the confusing and sometimes contradicting information concerning the concealed carry laws.'

The training provided will offer the opportunity to answer questions and provide information that area residents may need to know.
