PHILLIPS COUNTY SHERIFF NEWS LOG for April 10, 2019
April 10, 2019
Please remember to file a new burn permit for the 2019 year. If you plan on doing any burning in 2019, please file one BEFORE you start to burn. These permits are good for all of 2019 and you only have to file one a year, not every time you burn. All 2018 permits will no longer be valid after December 31, 2018. Call PCSO, 406-654-2350, to let Dispatch know of your controlled burn before you start, as a courtesy. Thank you!
Please be advised: If you are planning on using Trafton Park shelters for an event in the future, please contact the Malta City Office, 654-1251, to reserve the shelters, get the key and pay for the electricity. The Phillips Co Sheriff’s Office will no longer be handling this. Thank you.
NOTICE TO NEW CONCEALED WEAPON PERMIT APPLICANTS: The Phillips County Sheriff’s Office will no longer be providing Concealed Weapon Permit classes. When you pick up the application, you will see the legal requirements necessary to obtain a Concealed Weapon Permit. If you wish, you can still complete training courses offered around the state OR satisfy the requirements of MCA 45-8-321(5), which is to show your familiarity with a firearm by bringing the weapon you plan on carrying concealed to the Sheriff’s Office and demonstrating to the Sheriff, or his designee, that you have a high degree of familiarity with the firearm.
