License to Carry a Concealed Firearms Permit


(Print form and completely fill out all fields)




Applicant must be at least 21 years of age.  Proof of age and residency will be requested when the application is submitted.  A post office box will not be accepted as a legal residence.  

On the front of the application, complete blocks 1-27 entering all information requested.  In block 28 check which type of permit you are requesting.  Block 29 is for character references.  The references should be reputable citizens who have known you for a considerable length of time.
In blocks 30A-J to 32 answer each question with a “yes” or “no” in the space at the right.  Further explanations are listed on the back of the application form.
Once you have completed all the questions read the paragraph, which is block 33 of the form, then sign and date the application.  Deputies of this office will do a thorough background check on each applicant.  Any falsifications made on this application, may be a violation of section 4904 (relating to unsworn falsification to authorities).
The permit itself is good for five years and is good for all legal firearms you may own.  Therefore, it is not necessary for you to provide us with the make and serial numbers of each firearm you may own.
The total cost of the permit is $20.00 (cash, check or money order).  The applicant must apply at the Sheriff’s Office in person.  The permit will be processed immediately and may take up to 2 hours for approval.   Permits will be processed BY APPOINTMENT ONLY (please call the office at 814-643-0880 to schedule). The appointments will be scheduled between the hours of 8:50 AM and 2:10 PM.


Please make every effort to fill out the application as completely as possible, as it will aid us in processing it.  If you have any questions, please feel free to call our office.
