Sheriff Drew takes time to read Dr. Seuss books to students at Spalding Park Elementary School on Wednesday, March 5, 2014.
***FOR EXISTING GUN PERMIT HOLDERS***
Effective February 20, 2014, Sheriff Dave Drew is replacing legible paper permits with a photo ID card. This is due to a change in the interpretation of the weapons permit law.
Weapon permit photo ID cards will be issued at the Sheriff's Office in the Woodbury County LEC located at 407 7th Street, Sioux City, Iowa. Expect the process to take approximately 15 minutes.
You are required to have a photo ID and your current legible paper permit when you arrive. The cost for the photo ID card is $20.00.
This is for EXISTING WEAPON PERMIT HOLDERS only. Anyone wishing to apply for a new weapon permit must do so on-line (encouraged) or at the Sheriff's Office.
