"Making a Difference"



Pennsylvania law requires the Sheriff of Indiana County to process all applications by county residents for a license to carry firearms

New applicants must include name, address and phone number of two (2) references that are not family members. We request the references be Indiana County residents. If they are not available, please use persons with reputable character that are familiar with you and are able to answer questions about your personality and background.

Licenses are issued to all those who qualify, based on a background investigation done by the Sheriffs Office through the Pennsylvania State Police Instant Check System (PICS). Once an application for license to carry is filed, the Sheriff has 45 days in which to do the investigation and notify the applicant. The license is valid for 5 years. The Sheriff has the ability to revoke the license at anytime for misuse.

All applicants are required to have a valid Pennsylvania Driver's License or Pennsylvania Photo Identification Card with a current address and must pay a fee of $20.00 (Personal Check, Money Order and/or Cash) is accepted at the time the application is submitted.

The Sheriff also licenses all firearms dealers in Indiana County. For more information on firearms licensing and safety please call our office at 724.465.3930
