Sheriff’s Office Adds Hours To Cut Down Wait For CCW Permits

posted on April 13, 2016

In Ohio, the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office is putting in a little overtime. Employees there are extending the hours of the concealed-carry licensing office because the waiting period for an appointment had become six to eight weeks.

A spokesperson for the office told The Delaware Gazette that interviews normally last no longer than 20 minutes, so the extra time at the beginning and end of each day has made a positive impact. The aim of the additional hours is to reduce waiting times to two weeks or less.

In 2013, the sheriff’s office processed 982 new licenses and 731 renewals, while the following year saw 714 new licenses issued, but over 1,000 renewals. Last year, 977 new licenses and 850 renewals came through the office. Sheriff Russell Martin says the added hours are paying off: “We’re pleased that we could provide an efficient and low-cost solution that greatly improves customer service for concealed handgun customers.”
