The Delaware County Sheriff's office is taking steps to meet the growing demand for concealed handgun licenses.
Sheriffs now say they will offer online appointment scheduling for obtaining or renewing a concealed handgun license (CHL).
The move comes after the amount of applicants for CHL’s have tripled over the past three years. Delaware County alone has seen a 66% growth rate in the same period.
In a press release, Delaware County Sheriff Russell Martin said online scheduling will allow citizens to go to the web site at their convenience and schedule an appointment within minutes. The online system is expected to streamline the appointment process, giving residents an immediate response. Sheriffs add that appointments can still be made via phone.
