MED RETURN PROGRAM:  Residents are reminded that the Med Return Program is still active.  Sheriff’s Deputies are available to pick up any unused medications from anyone in Elk County who may have concerns about travelling to any location of the collection boxes during this confusing time.  Anyone wishing to drop off unused medications at the Sheriff’s Office should call upon arrival due to the judicial emergency that is still in effect, and a deputy will meet them outside of the courthouse. Simply call the Sheriff’s Office @ 776-5353 Monday thru Friday between the hours of 08:30 A.M. and 4:00 P.M. to arrange for unused medications to be picked up at your home by a Deputy Sheriff or dropped off to the Sheriff’s Office at the courthouse.


UPDATE 4/1/20
- PRESS RELEASE

At the direction of Governor Wolf’s Office, License to Carry permits that expire on March 19, 2020 or later have been extended to May 30, 2020.  In view of the stay at home order and the extension of the time on License to Carry permits, it is in the best interest of our citizens to avoid non-essential travel and comply with social distancing.  Consequently, the Sheriff’s Office has suspended issuing License to Carry permits until the state of emergency order is lifted or has expired.  The Sheriff’s Office will publish a date in the future when the processing of License to Carry permits resumes.

Persons who hold License to Carry Permits that have an expiration date that precedes March 19th, should call the Sheriff’s Office directly Monday through Friday between the hours of 08:30 AM and 3:30 PM to schedule an appointment if they wish to renew their permit.
