DeKalb County Sher­iff’s Of­fice will open Satur­days, 8 to 3:45

Cherokee County Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

For the past cou­ple of years the DeKalb County Sher­iff’s Of­fice has been work­ing on open­ing the of­fice on Satur­days to ac­com­pany the peo­ple who are un­able to make it to the of­fice dur­ing our reg­u­lar of­fice hours.

Start­ing Satur­day April 1, 2017, the DeKalb County Sher­iff’s Of­fice will be open from 8 a.m. to 3:45 p.m., DeKalb County Sher­iff Jimmy Har­ris re­ported re­cently. “We will open for peo­ple to pick up re­ports and to re­new their pis­tol per­mits.”

Sher­iff Har­ris says, “We feel like this will help peo­ple who are un­able to make it down here dur­ing the week to re­new a pis­tol per­mit or to get a re­port.

The of­fice work­ers are go­ing to ro­tate their days off and they will take one day off dur­ing the week and work that Satur­day, so there will not be any over­time ex­pense to the County.

“We would like to en­cour­age the ones who wants to take part in this to please be here be­fore 3: 45,” said Har­ris. “Be­cause there will only be one per­son work­ing and the amount of time it takes to pull a re­port or re­new a pis­tol per­mit we do not want them to have to work any over­time.”

“We are also look­ing into a com­puter pro­gram that will as­sist you on re­new­ing your pis­tol per­mits on­line,” said Har­ris.
