Some of these counties seem to think they can get away with all sorts of outrageous demands with regards to CHP apps.
First off, you are not required to give ANY info over the phone. All you need to do is walk in and request an application. You can fill it out on your own time, and have it notarized by any qualified notary you want. You then need to give them the app, the fees, and get fingerprinted, which they probably only do at certain times during the week.
Someone at GRNC needs to start riding herd on these Sheriff's deparments, and the State AG's office, to get these folks in-line with the rest of the state.
Eventually, these rogue Sheriffs are going to cost NC it's "gold star" rating, with their arbitrary policies, difficult schedules, and unreasonable demands.
We need to nip this in the bud.
Man, I'm glad I live in a county where the Sheriff actually believes in the Rule of Law, follows state guidelines, and processes apps with courtesy, speed and efficiency. I give total props to Beaufort County, and Sheriff Alan Jordan, for a job well done!
