PERMIT TO PURCHASE

The Carlton County Sheriff’s Office processes Permit to Purchase applications for its cities and townships, with the exceptions of Cloquet and Moose Lake. Permits to Purchase for those cities are handled by their respective police departments. There is no fee to apply for a Permit to Purchase.

PERMIT TO CARRY

The Carlton County Sheriff’s Office is responsible for all Permits to Carry issued in Carlton County. Each application is subjected to records checks through the MN Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and the MN Department of Human Services. Once those checks have been completed, applications are given to the Sheriff for approval. There is a $100 non-refundable fee to apply for a Permit to Carry.

Application forms for both the Permit to Purchase and the Permit to Carry may be obtained through the BCA website:
