The Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office remains, as always, a staunch defender of the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens. We remain equally committed to providing responsive, quality service to the public, and will do so while implementing current, necessary precautions while providing those services.
While we remain committed to continuing the processing and issuance of permits, we are also bound by Federal, State, and Local governmental rules, regulations, and directives. Please understand, as these rules, regulations and directives change, our procedures may also change accordingly.
Finally, but most importantly, I, personally, and on behalf of the entire Office, want to assure you that our thoughts and prayers are with those families struggling during these difficult times. We also extend our thoughts and prayers to our County, State and Nation, especially medical professionals and first responders who are serving on the front lines for all of us. May God bless them and keep them safe.
Sheriff Christopher R. Leppler
