Sheriff's Office

Until further notice, the Adams County Sheriff’s Office will not be conducting fingerprint services for the general public. Please check back on the County Website and our Facebook page for future changes regarding fingerprinting services.

The Adams County Sheriff’s Office will be issuing License to Carry  Firearms by appointment only, starting, May 26, 2020. Please call our office to schedule an appointment.

It has been announced that Governor Tom Wolf has granted an extension to license to carry firearms permits. Permits which expired on March 19, 2020 or later have been extended to December 31, 2020. The extension is necessary due to the closure of some county courthouses and sheriff's offices, as well as other protective measures being taken to limit the spread of COVID-19.
