Effective September 1, 2017, the 85th Texas Legislature approved legislation allowing correctional officers and correctional supervisors employed by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice to obtain their Texas License to Carry a handgun (LTC) by utilizing their in-service or pre-service handgun qualification records to fulfill the shooting range proficiency requirement. This means that no shooting range qualification is necessary when taking the LTC Training Class. The legislature also reduced the fee for the license to $0.00 for TDCJ correctional staff. That's right...the license is now FREE to active TDCJ officers and supervisors. The only costs involved to obtain your Texas License to Carry is the cost of the class, which is being offered here for $50.00, plus electronic fingerprinting by IdenToGo, which costs $10.00. The fingerprinting fee is payable at the time you have your fingerprints taken.
In order to obtain the license for free, TDCJ security staff must obtain two documents from TDCJ to submit to the Texas Department of Public Safety Handgun Licensing Division. Those two documents are 1) your verification of employment from TDCJ's Human Resource Department; and 2) copies of successful handgun qualification from your last in-service or pre-service from Correctional Training and Staff Development (CTSD). When taking this class, officers will be provided a form which they will submit to CTSD, who will send them their in-service qualification record and then forward the form to Human Resources, who will send them their verification of employment.
To enroll in the Texas City, TX class being held in the Davy Crockett Room at the Nessler Civic Center, 2010 5th Avenue North in Texas City, complete the form on this page and click SUBMIT. Pre-Registration is required to obtain the $50.00 discounted rate. Once you submit your registration form, you will receive an invoice via PayPal allowing you to pay for your course via all major credit cards. Paying by credit card will confirm your reservation in the class and you will receive a receipt from PayPal. Pre-registering allows necessary paperwork to be prepared in advance which will ultimately save time on class day. If these two classes fill up, additional classes will likely be added in the near future. In the event any seats remain on class day, the walk-in rate will be $75.00 at the door.
If you have any questions, or wish to register by phone, please give us a call at (409) 771-4219. This class is being presented by LTCGALVESTON in Galveston, Texas. Check us out at www.LTCGALVESTON.com. You may also email any questions to LTCGALVESTON@gmail.com.
