The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office is now operating its new CCW permit system. Effective August of 2013, state law moved the control of issuing CCW permits from the Missouri Department of Revenue to local Sheriff's Office.
The project was a massive undertaking statewide and Lawrence County is now up and running with the new system.
CCW permit holders who were issued paper temporary permits from approximately August 2013 until today can now return to the Sheriff's Office to receive their new permanent CCW card at no charge.
Permit holders do not need to make appointments to get the new card. They simply need to come to the Sheriff's Office Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m until 12:00 p.m. and then again from 1:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.
The Administrative office will be closed on Tuesday March 18, 2014 from 8:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. to receive additional training on the system.
