As I said in another post, I have been talking to the Probate Judges Office more today than I have in the past two months. Anyway, I found that our turn around time from the time of the application to the permit is issued is 5-7 days now that we have gone to live scan as opposed to inked cards. The reason(s) it takes so long is: 1) transmitted the hard copy of the GCIC/NCIC FP card results to the courthouse. That can not be done in County mail, it has to be hand delivered. They do that once a week. (Printouts and the info they contain can not be possessed by someone not trained in GCIC "Safety and Security" and they must have signed a GCIC "Awareness Statement". None of our county mail employees have been so trained. If you live in Oconee and can't wait 5-7 days, call me and we can expedite the delivery.
