How do I obtain a permit to purchase a handgun?

Information can be found in the Gun Permit section.

Please note that the Sheriff’s Office does not register handguns for those who live in the City limits of Omaha.

You will need to go to the Omaha Police Department at 505 South 15th Street, call (402) 444-5600 or visit their website.

In addition, the Sheriff’s Office does not process concealed weapon permits. That service is provided by the Nebraska State Patrol and further information can be found at their website.
