The Cass County Sheriff's Office will be issuing a temporary permit on a Cass County Sheriff's Office business card with all of the required information. This card will be presented to Law Enforcement on request, along with an acceptable identification as outlined in the application process. Please advise the Law Enforcement Official to contact the Cass County MO Sheriff's Office at (816) 380-8320 to confirm the permitâ€™s validity. DO NOT LAMINATE OR EXPOSE THE CARD TO EXTREME HEAT as the printed information is on thermal paper and should be protected from heat sources. There will be no additional charge to get the appropriate, proper card when that system has been established.
Please continue to check here for updates regarding the permit cards which should occur no later than January 2014.
