Pitt County Sheriff's Office launches online portal for gun permits

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. -

Getting a gun permit from your sheriff generally means several trips to the court house.

Beginning Tuesday in Pitt County, you can apply online.

The Pitt County Sheriff's Office launched an application process on its website.

You access the form and fill it out all online. You can even pay for it that way.

The sheriff's office then processes it and e-mails you when it's ready. Only then do you have to show up in person to pick up the permit.

"We've had a lot of the public come in and ask why we weren't doing it and it would be beneficial to them. So we are trying to do what the public has been interested in," said Lisinday Flynn, Pitt County Sheriff's Clerk.

For now, you can still fill out an application in person.
