For Immediate Release March 27, 2017
The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office Will Open on Saturdays
Sheriff Jimmy Harris states as follows:
“For the past couple of years we have 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 8:00 to 3:45. 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. 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 you pistol permits online.”
Chief Deputy Michael Edmondson says “This is just another way for us to make the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office more accessible to the citizens of DeKalb County.”
