Pistol Permits

 DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office Online Pistol Permit Application.

Online permit applications will be processed Monday through Friday between the hours of 8am and 4pm and then mailed to the address given on the application. All correspondence regarding the status of the application, including the approval of the application will be sent via the email address provided on the application. In addition to the permit fee, the company that provides the online system charges a convenience fee and a credit card processing fee. These fees are paid directly to the company and are not collected by the Sheriff’s Office. Retired military veterans and retired law enforcement officers will still need to come to the office with their documentation to apply for their permits.

Click the link below to begin the online application process.

Beginning October 1, 2022, you may only purchase a 1 (one) or a 5 (five) year permit, all other permits will be denied. If you receive a denial for the incorrect number of years your money will be refunded, and you may apply again for the correct number of years for approval.
