COUNTY CLERK ADAM BELLO
ANNOUNCES “PISTOL PERMIT SATURDAYS”

Wed, Dec 06 2017

ROCHESTER – Monroe County Clerk Adam Bello has announced special Saturday hours for processing pistol permit transactions at the Clerk’s Office. The additional office hours will give pistol permit holders the opportunity to add or remove firearms, update addresses, request a plastic card conversion, and complete other transactions.

“The demand for pistol permit services has been surging recently as the holiday season gets underway, and as the New York State recertification process has driven permit holders to update their permits, resulting in many questions,” said Monroe County Clerk Adam Bello. “I know it is difficult for many permit holders to visit during normal business hours. Providing additional Saturday hours is a simple way to enhance the customer service experience, making our services much more convenient for local gun owners who need to perform pistol permit transactions.”

The Clerk’s Office will offer three “Pistol Permit Saturdays” in December – the 9th, 16th, and 30th – from 9 a.m. to noon at the County Office Building located at 39 West Main Street downtown. The Clerk’s Office is also adding pistol permit transactions to the regularly scheduled “Passport Days” on one Saturday per month in 2018. Only the pistol permit unit will be open, processing pistol permit-related amendments and transactions on these dates. In addition to amendments, new applicants can pick up application packets on Saturdays; however, they will need to wait until normal business hours to submit completed applications, so that the fingerprinting and background check process can be done at the same time.

In addition to the expanded hours, Clerk Bello is also reminding pistol permit holders that all permits issued prior to January 15, 2013 need to be recertified by January 31, 2018. The recertification process requires permit holders to verify their information on the NYS Troopers website, or by mail by printing the recertification form. Paper forms are also available at the Monroe County Clerk’s Office. If submitting by mail, the State Police strongly recommend using certified mail. For permits issued after January 15, 2013, the permit will need to be recertified every five years after the issuance date printed on the card.

“If permit holders aren’t sure what the status of their permit is, or have concerns that there are problems that might hinder the recertification process, I urge them to come in and talk to our staff,” said County Clerk Bello. “In addition to our own records and advice, we can also provide forms and information related to the state process and attempt to work with our contacts in other law enforcement and governmental agencies if necessary.”
