Plastic weapon permit ID card fees announced

Plastic weapon permit ID card fees announced

The Jasper County Sheriff’s Office has begun issuing optional plastic weapon permit cards with photo identification.

Citizens applying for the new permit to carry a weapon will be offered either the paper permit or the plastic permit ID cards. Those choosing the plastic ID card will be charged an additional $10 for a total of $60.

Citizens who have existing permits to carry weapons also have the option of obtaining a plastic ID card for $10. Citizens who apply will be required to show their current paper weapons permits, which will be replaced with the new card.

Citizens who need a duplicate weapons permit will be required to pay the standard $25 fee for a paper duplicate or $35 for a plastic ID card.

In order to facilitate this process, the Jasper County Sheriff’s Office business hours will be extended to 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. the next three Thursdays in April.

Citizens also may obtain the new plastic ID cards during normal business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Payment can be made in form of cash or check. The sheriff’s office is not able to accept payments via credit or debit cards.
