Aiming for a Police Career
Newport Police Sgt. Gregory Belcher started Police Explorers for boys and girls, ages 14 to 20, who are interested in law enforcement as a possible career.
For information about the Police Explorers, a non-scouting subsidiary of the Boy Scouts of America, contact Sgt. Belcher, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another program offered by the rifle club is for beginning youth. Boys and girls, ages 8 -16 interested in learning to shoot safely and accurately can stop by the Newport Rifle Club the second and third Fridays of every month beginning at 7 p.m., 360 Wyatt Road, Middletown, for free training.
Newport Rifle Club also offers a variety of firearms courses for men and women 21 and older, including basic pistol for those with little or no experience with firearms. Several basic pistol classes a year are for women only. For more information about classes, visit newportrifleclub.org.
