 Press Release

January 5, 2009

Wayne County Sheriff Richard Pisciotti today announced that effective Monday January 12, 2009, the Sheriff's Office will be processing pistol permits by appointment only.  Walk-in requests will not be granted.  Applicants can call 315-946-5790 and request an appointment time for a pistol permit.  Appointments will be scheduled between 8:30 am and 3:00 pm Monday through Thursday. 

The Sheriff's Office has experienced an extremely large increase in the number of pistol permit applications, and this policy change is necessary so that Sheriff's personnel can provide fair and equitable service to all applicants.

The cost of a pistol permit application remains $124.25, and needs to be paid in cash only.  Photo ID and documentation of Wayne County residency is also required.
