Special Services

The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office Special Services Office performs an assortment of services daily. The Special Services Office issues all permits to purchase pistols in Cumberland County and all concealed carry permits are applied for and issued in the Special Services Office. Special Services also conducts criminal background checks for job applicants, housing and education.  Fingerprints are electronically scanned and printed on two cards for job applicants, professional licenses and concealed carry permit applicants.  Open warrant checks can also be obtained for those seeking shelter in one of Cumberland County Homeless Shelters. Open warrant checks for those seeking temporary shelter are free of charge.

In an ongoing effort to provide better service to Cumberland County's residents, the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office has modified its pistol purchase permit application process by installing a new online order and payment system to purchase pistol permits.

Once the application is submitted, the applicant will receive an email, text message, voicemail or a combination of the three in regard to their application process.  The applicant will continue to be updated as the process progresses toward approval in a faster more efficient manner.

Sheriff Butler said, "This new and improved process will reduce the time that an applicant will need to take from work as it will be more convenient and accessible.  I want a better process for all of our applicants and we're committed to providing a fast and convenient service."
