Fingerprinting hours expanded for concealed carry apps


The Rogers County Sheriff’s Office now offers fingerprinting for concealed weapon applicants on Tuesday evenings and every other weekend.
Slots during additional hours of operation are limited and should be made by appointment only, said Lt. Deputy Jerry Smittle.
Fingerprinting will continue to be offered from 8-11 a.m. and 1-4 p.m. Monday-Friday on a first-come, first- serve basis. 
Additional hours provide an opportunity for concealed carry applicants to find the time to come in and have their fingerprints scanned.
“The addition is part of an effort to better serve the citizens of Rogers County,” said Sheriff Scott Walton.
Applicants must bring the completed application and provide a passport photo along with a payment of $25 for the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigations. Photo service is not available at the sheriff’s office.
Completed applications with photographs and fingerprints will be sent by RCSO employees to the OSBI. If an application is approved by the OSBI, a letter will be sent to the licensee’s home.
The Rogers County Sheriff’s Office does not issue licenses.
