BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Pistol permit holders who want their information kept private and confidential can go to Erie County's website and obtain a form to "opt out" from public disclosure.
State Police will make forms available on February 15th, and Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs says his office is encouraging permit holders to visit their website www.erie.gov/optout and enter their email address, so they can receive the form electronically.
According to Jacobs, this will give permit holders time to complete the form and give the Clerk's Office time to seat the records.
Details from the Erie County Clerk's Office:
Pistol permit holders have 60 days after the form are made available to submit completed forms to the Clerk's Office. Permit holders can access the on-line request by going to www.erie.gov/optout to enter their e-mail address. Once the Clerk receives the "opt-out" form from the New York State Police, his office will immediately send out an electronic version to those who subscribed. After the permit holder has completed the form in its entirety, it can be mailed to: Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs, c/o Pistol Permit Office, 92 Franklin Street, Buffalo, NY 14202.
