(WAFF) - Beginning Saturday, April 1, DeKalb County Sheriff's Office will be open from 8 a.m. through 3:45 p.m. for people to pick up reports and renew their pistol permits.

"For the past couple of years we have been working on opening the office on Saturdays to accommodate the people who are unable to make it to the office during our regular office hours," Sheriff Jimmy Harris said.

"We feel like this will help people who are unable to make it down here during the week to renew a pistol permit or get a report."

The office workers are going to rotate their days off and they will take one day off during the work week and work Saturday, so there will not be any overtime expense to the County.

We would encourage the ones who want to take part in this to please be here before 3:45 p.m., because there will only be one person working and the amount of time it takes to pull a report or renew a pistol permit we do not want them to have to work any overtime.

The DCSO is also looking into a program that would allow people to renew their permits online.

"This is just another way for us to make the DeKalb County Sheriff's office more accessible to the citizens of DeKalb County," Chief Deputy Michael Edmondson.
