The Scott County Sheriff's Office would like to introduce a new procedure for applying for weapon permits. Effective February 5th, 2014, Weapon Permits may be ordered online and now have the option to pay using a credit or debit card.

Prior to the new system, Scott County Residents applied in person using paper applications during business hours for weapon permits. The online system allows applicants to apply online 24 hours a day / 7 days a week and from the convenience of your home. There is a $4.00 convenience fee for applying online plus any credit or debit card fees that may apply.

For those citizens who may not have access to an Internet connected device, you may apply in person at the Scott County Sheriff's Office inside the Scott County Courthouse where we will place a kiosk for weapon permit applications. Paper applications will no longer be accepted.

All orders require a valid e-mail address or phone number to communicate the status of your order. You will be notified via e-mail and/or phone whether your application has been approved, denied, or require additional information. Once approved applicants are required to appear in person to the Sheriff's Office to show your valid I.D. and training documentation.

There will be a press conference on Wednesday February 5th, 2014, at 10:00 am in the Sheriff's Office Pavilion Conference Room to demonstrate the online application system.
