County Clerk Adam Bello, Sheriff Todd Baxter Announce Informational Sessions to Help Pistol Permit Holders with Recertification

Fri, Jan 12 2018

ROCHESTER — Monroe County Clerk Adam Bello and Monroe County Sheriff Todd Baxter announced that they will be hosting three informational sessions to answer any questions residents have regarding the New York State Safe Act’s recertification requirements. Anyone with a pistol permit issued before January 15, 2013 is required to recertify their permit with the New York State Police by January 31, 2018. For anyone with a permit issued after January 15, 2013, the deadline to recertify is 5 years after the date of issuance.

“With the first deadline for recertification fast approaching, I am pleased to work with Sheriff Baxter in providing opportunities for residents to have their questions answered and provide them with instructions on how to meet the new requirements,” said County Clerk Bello.

Sheriff Baxter added, “We look forward to partnering with the Monroe County Clerk’s Office to ensure that every gun owner understands the new requirements. The legislation that has led to the recertification requirement has left many unanswered questions for law-abiding gun owners. We look forward to meeting with you and answering any questions or concerns that you may have as it pertains to these new requirements.”

The meetings are:

  • Thursday, January 18, 2018, 6 p.m.
