FORMS AVAILABLE ON-LINE AND AT LOCAL AUTO BUREAUS
Erie County, NY – Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs announced today that he finally has received from New York State Police the much anticipated “opt-out” form which enable individual pistol permit holders to protect their information from ever being made public.
Permit holders can go to www.erie.gov/optout to print out a copy of the form, fill-it out and mail it or fax it in to the Erie County Clerk. Alternatively all County Auto Bureaus will have copies of the forms available as of Tuesday, February 19th, as well as the Pistol Permit Office located at 92 Franklin Street, Buffalo, NY 14202.
“The ‘opt-out’ is a simple one page form that allows you to choose one of four reasons you desire to keep your information private. Once the permit holder completes the form simply mail it or fax it into our office,” said Jacobs.
