The application approval process takes few days.  You will be contacted either by email or text message if you have been approved.

You can then go to the  sheriff’s office to have your picture taken and pick up your photo I.D. card.

You can reach the application by going to their website at and clicking the tab labeled Concealed Weapons Permit.

The goal is that this will help citizens by offering online payment options and to save time by only making one trip to the sheriff’s office to pick-up a card.
