Support Services Division
Concealed Handgun/Handgun Purchase Program
Support Services employees are also responsible for administering the Sheriff’s Concealed Carry and Handgun Purchase Permit Programs. Staff is tasked with the investigation of applicants for concealed carry permits and permits to purchase handguns under state law and the department must issue and reauthorize the same periodically.
Reception Area Operations and Walk-in Reports
All reception area operations and the answering of walk-in questions and reports for officers are also covered by the Division. Civilian employees man the front desk area and answer telephones, greet visitors and sign them into security system, maintain and issue concealed carry and handgun purchase permits as approved and perform other clerical tasks. Sworn members of the division are available to speak with citizens who request to consult an officer or file a report, thereby freeing up the Patrol Division to concentrate on their patrol activities.
