Randolph County Sheriff's Office

posted 1/13/2016

Due to the increased request for firearm purchase permits, and concealed carry permits we are forced to go to a scheduling system. Starting Tuesday, January 19, 2016, @ 8:30 AM we will be processing three (3) permits an hour and ask that you please call and schedule a time to complete the permitting process. We break for lunch from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM. We will then be processing permits up until 4:00 PM.

Because of changes in the law that took effect December 1, 2015, there is up to a fourteen (14) Day waiting period for firearm purchase permits. This includes extra paperwork and data entry that also has to be completed by the clerk’s office and the mental health system.

We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause, but the surge in permit request has left us no alternative. We thank you for patience and understanding.

Please go to our website for the permit applications. You may fill the application out, but please do not sign and date the application until you come in for your appointment.

Please remember to bring your driver’s license, and proof of residence (Power Bill, Automobile Registration, Phone Bill).

To schedule a time to apply please call 336-318-6677 or 336-318-6727 between 8:00AM – 5:00PM, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

We need your help!


Randolph County is currently engaged in a planning process to become less vulnerable to natural disasters, and your participation is important to us!

The county, along with participating local jurisdictions and other participating partners, is now working to prepare a multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan. The purpose of this Plan is to identify and assess our community's natural hazard risks and determine how to best minimize or manage those risks. Upon completion, the Plan will represent a comprehensive multi-jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan for the county.

This survey questionnaire provides an opportunity for you to share your opinions and participate in the mitigation planning process. The information you provide will help us better understand your hazard concerns and can lead to mitigation activities that should help lessen the impact of future hazard events.

Please help us by completing this survey by January 12, 2016.

If you have any questions regarding this survey or would like to learn about more ways you can participate in the development of the Randolph County Hazard Mitigation Plan, please contact Atkins, planning consultant for the project. You may reach Ryan Wiedenman (Atkins) at 919-431-5295 or by email at
