EFFECTIVE SEPTEMBER 1, 2017,
TEXAS LICENSE TO CARRY HANDGUNS
(FORMERLY TEXAS CONCEALED HANDGUN LICENSES)
ARE FREE TO ACTIVE TDCJ OFFICERS AND SUPERVISORS
EVENING CLASSES NOW SCHEDULED IN
HUNTSVILLE, BEEVILLE, AND PALESTINE!!!
Effective September 1, 2017, thanks to a new law enacted by the 85th Texas Legislature, your Texas License to Carry a Handgun is now free if you are an active TDCJ Officer or Supervisor. The only costs involved in obtaining your LTC is to take a Texas Department of Public Safety certified Handgun Licensing Course and to be digitally fingerprinted. The cost of the licensing course varies among instructors (ours is at the reduced rate of $50.00 to active TDCJ security staff). Digital fingerprinting through IdenToGo is $10.00. And,best of all, you do not have to qualify on the pistol range on the day of the class. This alone will typically save you about $15.00 to $20.00 in ammunition costs. If you work in TDCJ Region I at one of the Huntsville area units, click here for a special class announcement of an upcoming class at the Texas Prison Museum in Huntsville.
Due to these changes, LTCGALVESTON will be offering its License to Carry classes to correctional officers employed by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice for a discounted fee of $50.00. This is a 40% savings off our regular LTC classes which are currently priced at $85.00.
In addition to taking the class to get the free License to Carry, the Texas Department of Public Safety requires TDCJ officers to obtain 2 documents in order to qualify for the no-qualification LTC classes. Those documents are: 1) a verification of employment as a correctional officer with TDCJ, and 2) a copy of the officer's pre-service or most recent in-service training records indicating successful completion of their range qualification. LTCGALVESTON will provide a form for its students to submit to TDCJ's Correctional Training & Staff Development department to obtain those 2 documents.
