The problem is the sheriffs only work m-f 6 am ish to 7 pm ish. They have a civilian person who does all initial paperwork and pictures. Then it gets handed over to one of several deputys who do permits as an OT type thing/ extra duty type thing, calling references etc. It is always in the evening b/c the S.O. is so short handed it has to be done after the courts are down for the day. They dont even have enough coverage for courtrooms at times I am not going to tell you why I know this.
