The Halifax County Sheriff’s department offers this online service as a convenience to the community. In addition to the per permit fee of $5, the system will charge a per-transaction fee for the convenience of applying and paying for your permits online. The convenience fee is not collected by the Sheriff. This fee is paid to the company that provides this order, payment, and processing system to the public. You do have the option of applying and paying via cash in person at the Sheriff’s office. By doing so, you will not be charged the convenience fee. The total fee is non-refundable.
