Polk supervisors to streamline weapons permit process


The Polk County Board of Supervisors today announced an organizational change in the Polk County Sheriff’s Office as a step toward speeding up the weapons permitting process for gun dealers. The reorganization, which the supervisors said in a release involves “a small number” of sheriff employees, will allow the department to create an easily accessible online database of permit numbers where dealers can check if the permit numbers of potential buyers have been revoked. Use of the database by the dealers will be voluntary, but officials are hopeful that dealers will be compelled to use it because it will be fast and user-friendly and is another way to protect themselves from liability. “Our goal with this new system is to make it easier for dealers to know if a potential buyer’s permit number has been revoked,” said Chief Tim Krum with the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, who will oversee the program. The system will be implemented in June and will only be searchable by permit number, not by name.
