Change in fingerprinting procedure for gun permit applications in unincorporated Porter County

Back to Front Page




As of Jan. 14, all residents of unincorporated Porter County who apply for a gun permit must have their fingerprints submitted electronically by L1 Solutions, the Porter County Sheriff’s Police says.

Once an applicant applies for a gun permit on line with the state, he must complete the next two steps—in any order—within 30 days.

The PCSP says:

•Schedule an appointment with L1 Solutions on line, as no walk-ins are allowed. L1 Solutions charges $9.95 for the electronic prints and will also collect the state’s application fee. Please note that, as of Jan. 14, the PCSP will no longer be taking fingerprints for gun permits at the station. Applicants must go to L1 Solutions for fingerprinting.

•Applicants must come to the PCSP station between 8:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday—expect holidays—with a money order (no cash, personal checks, or credit cards will be accepted) for the local fee and to sign their application.

See for instructions and links to the state’s application website and to L1 Solutions.
