Changes to Handgun Permit Process in LaPorte County

Share this post

LaPorte Co Sheriff Dept
Starting Monday, the LaPorte County Sheriff's Office reports they will no longer be accepting paper handgun permits and will no longer fingerprint applicants due to recent changes implemented by the Indiana State Police. The Sheriff's Office reports those interested in obtaining an application must do so online, via the State Police's website, http://www.in.gov/isp/2828.htm, where they can also schedule an appointment for fingerprinting, http://www.in.gov/isp/2674.htm, at a location of their choice. Authorities say once those two-steps are complete, applicants must report to the agency that has primary law enforcement jurisdiction of their place of residence for a background check. Anyone living in LaPorte County who cannot access the internet is encouraged to contact the Sheriff's Office to schedule an appointment for a handgun permit.
