Sheriff’s Office


Due to restrictions from the COVID-19 pandemic, and out of an abundance of caution, all IN PERSON transactions were suspended in March 2020. This included pistol permit appointments, civil transactions, etc. We have now resumed in-person transactions on a LIMITED BASIS , for your convenience, we would advise you to call ahead. Please be patient as we can only do a limited number of transactions per day.

Transactions received through the mail will be processed as usual.

To call ahead or if you have questions the number is (585) 268-9204.
