Phillips County Sheriff's Report for September 23, 2019
September 25, 2019
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.
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!
Citizens of Phillips County, you should have received the letter from the National Child Safety Council regarding the partnership with the Phillips County Sheriff's Office. As you will see, there was a mistake on the return address for the donation. Everything on the envelope is correct except the city. The envelope has Glasgow on it instead of Malta. Please cross out Glasgow and replace it with Malta. This was a mistake from the mailing center in North Dakota for the NCSC. Any and all donations would be greatly appreciated. It will help in our attempt to reach the children in our community schools with materials regarding bullying, bicycle safety, internet safety, and other valuable information.
