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