COVID-19 UPDATE 06/09/2020: 

The Ingham County Sheriff’s Office Law Enforcement Lobby resumed normal business hours starting at 8am on June 9, 2020 . We ask that you practice social distancing in our lobby, as we can only accommodate up to nine persons at one time (Only those that have business will be allowed in.) Everyone is required to wear a face covering upon entering our lobby area for service.
A few services changes are: Pistol Sales Records will be dropped off in our new drop box in the vestibule, and License To Purchase (LTP) or Purchase Permits will generally be processed within 48 hours.

The Sheriff’s Office would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding during this COVID-19 Pandemic time.
