AS OF OCTOBER 1, 2014, PAPER APPLICATIONS AND FINGERPRINTS CARDS WILL NO LONGER BE DONE FOR FIREARM PERMITS!!
How to apply for a handgun permit:
As of October 1, 2014, anyone wanting to apply for a firearm permit MUST go to the Indiana State Police website at www.in.gov/isp, and apply online. Applicants will also be required to pay their State fees online and schedule an appointment to have their fingerprints scanned at one of the Central Indiana MorphoTrust sites, which will be made available during the online application process.
MorphoTrust: 877-472-6917 or https://in.ibtfingerprint.com/
After you have successfully completed the above process, you will still need to go to your local law enforcement agency in the jurisdiction in which you live to pay your local fees. For example, if you live in the city limits of Lebanon, you will need to go to the Lebanon Police Department, etc. (Your driver’s license or photo ID must be valid and the address must be the same as your physical address).
Our office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 am – 4 pm. Our office also follows the Boone County Holiday schedule.
Local Permit Fees:
Lifetime Permit: $50.00
Lifetime Current Permit: $40.00
Four-Year Permit: $10.00
The new permits will be hard plastic, like a credit card - no longer paper. Current permit holders will not be required to obtain a new card until theirs expires.
With this new application process, once you login and have an account, you will be able to check the status of your permit, and you will also be able to order a duplicate permit or change your address on your current permit.
