Page County Sheriff's Office News

Now that the fall rains have subsided and farmers are getting into the fields to harvest their crops and reap their rewards for a year of hard work we would like the driving public to be more aware of Slow Moving Vehicles. As farmers move from field to field please watch for equipment and share the road. Farm vehicles have the same rights to the road that any other vehicle does and are expected to follow the same laws as the motoring public. At highway speeds and approaching a slow moving vehicle you close the separation distance at a rapid pace.

Updated Information on Weapon Permits With law changes that took effect on July 1st, 2017 there are a few changes with weapons permits we would like you to be aware of. The biggest change was for a card that is uniform looking regardless of which County it was issued in. All permits to acquire are $25.00 for 5 years, these are not renewable. Permits to Carry, also valid for 5 years, will be $50.00 for new & $25.00 for renewal. In order to qualify for the renewal rate you must make application at the Sheriff's Office within a 60 day window of expiration, 30 days prior until 30 days after expiration. Be advised that once you permit to carry has expired you are no longer able to legally carry firearms but you still qualify for the renewal rate until 30 days after expiration. All permits will be a card, no more paper permits, and will be issued by the State of Iowa and mailed to you much like when you renew your Driver's License. If you have a paper permit or card issued previously the will remain valid until their expiration. Once your application is approved we submit it to the State of Iowa for printing and have no control of how long it will take. The last information we received was that it should be printed within 10 days of the Sheriff approving your application. I have attached examples of what the new permits will look like.
