“What locations are prohibited to what’s defined as concealed,” said Perry County Assistant State’s Attorney David Searby.
Perry County, Pinckneyville, and Du Quoin law enforcement departments are taking in the list of rules during seminars designed just for their jobs.
“They need to know when they’re out there enforcing the law what’s legal and what’s not,” said Searby.
Searby is teaching the short class. He spent the last few months going through the legislation. The goal is to give officers a good knowledge of the important basics. That way they can safely patrol and respond to calls.
