Under former Sheriff Dwight Franklin, the Camden County shooting range on Route A was open to the public two days a week. Since Sheriff Tony Helms took the reigns, it has yet to open. He wants the citizens to know that he will be opening it back to the public, but he has some things he needs to figure out to make it work still.
The insurance company requires the department to have a trained officer at the range when it’s open to the public. Sheriff Helms says that, over the course of the last two years, they spent around $35,000 to employ a part-time employee for the range while the range only brought in about $4,500 from public use.
