Gun Permits

Effective July 1, 2021 the lifetime license to carry a handgun (LTCH) will become fee exempt, per IC 35-47-2-4.  The five year and lifetime LTCH may be applied for and held concurrently.

If you are a resident of the City of Greensburg and State of Indiana, in order to obtain a carry permit you must complete the Indiana State Police Firearms Licensing Application and schedule electronic fingerprinting. After your fingerprints are complete, you must visit the Greensburg Police Department for your local background check.  Your application will be reviewed by the Chief of Police, and if your background check is clear, the Chief will recommend the application for approval via the website and submit to Indiana State Police Firearms Division. If approved, you should receive your gun permit within approximately 60 days after final approval

Permit Options 

There are two main options for handgun carry permits:

  • A five-year license
  • A lifetime license
