Where do I get the forms for the application?

There are three forms that you will
initially need to have completed when you report to be fingerprinted. 
These forms must be neatly completed in black
ink only.


The first form is the Pistol Permit Pedigree Sheet (PPS-01),
the second is the
Arrest / Charge
(PPS-02), and the third is the Authorization for Release of
Personal Information
(PPS-24).  You
may download and print the forms by clicking on the links on the Sheriff’s
Office Pistol Permit web page.
read the forms completely and carefully prior to filling them out.
  The Arrest
/ Charge Affidavit
and the Authorization
for Release of Personal Information
must be notarized.
