1View Handgun License Information 

Self Defense Act and other fingerprinting will be restricted to appointment only indefinitely. Applications are accepted Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10:30 a.m. to1:30 p.m. only at the Cleveland County Detention Center, (Cleveland County jail) 2550 W. Franklin Road, Norman, OK 73069. Call Tiffany Baum any weekday (M-F) at 405-701-7731 to schedule an appointment. Handgun license applicants: OSBI requires applicants to be fingerprinted by the Sheriff’s Office in their county of residence. OSBI will “NOT” accept fingerprints for handgun license from anywhere else. Fingerprinting is included in the $25 fee.

While the Constitutional Carry law went into effect Nov. 1, 2019,  the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office continued to provide fingerprinting services and to facilitate the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation background check. These services will be provided for those who still want the licensing for other reasons such as to be in compliance when traveling to other states that reciprocate with our gun licensing laws.

All other fingerprints: You may get your fingerprints done at ANY location (see list of other locations below). Both hands fit on one card. However, it is recommended that you find out from whomever is requiring the fingerprints exactly how many sets you need.

Our agency charges a flat fee of $5 per card.  Payment MUST be in the form of a Money Order or Cashier’s Check.  (No cash, personal checks, or credit/debit cards can be accepted)

If you are notified that your fingerprints “aren’t of FBI quality”, we will reprint you at NO charge. Reprints are done the same days and times as regular fingerprinting.
