Due to the changes in the Iowa Non Professional Permit to Carry laws and the Permit to Acquire laws passed July 1, 2017 the Kossuth County Sheriff’s Office will be making some changes in regards to the application process.

Beginning January 1, 2018 the permits will be printed by the Department of Public Safety from a central location, but the applications will still be taken at the Kossuth County Sheriff’s Office.

Beginning January 1, 2018 we will not accept any applications after 3:00 p.m., because of the data that needs to be uploaded to the DPS on a daily basis.
