Interesting idea, but I wonder if this training will cover open carry?


Managing the Nightlife

Nov. 5, 2009 9:39 am

The Fredericksburg Police Department is running a seminar next week for employees at city bars called "Managing the Nightlife." The seminar will be taught by representatives from the city's police department, commonwealth's attorney's office and fire department, as well as a regional agent from the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.Topics will include fire codes and occupancy limits, state alcohol laws, fake IDs, dealing with intoxicated people and various legal issues. The seminars are deliberately scheduled in advance of the holidays. Last year more than 80 people attended the sessions. I'll be attending one of the seminars next week and will have an article in the FLS.

Fredericksburg police officer Ron Swaney and Sgt. Jim Kuebler created five fliers that will be handedout to people attending the seminars and hung at citybars during the holiday season.They feature employees and family members of the Fredericksburg PD, including Chief David Nye's youngest daughter, Caroline, whoplays the designated driver elf. Below are the posters.
