Starting Monday, Wake County residents in need of a concealed carry or pistol purchase permit can apply for them online.

Officials say the goal of offering the service online is to make the permitting process more convenient and less time consuming for customers.

The change allows people the opportunity to have paperwork completed before submitting it to the Wake County Sheriff's Office. Until now, people had to apply for concealed carry and pistol purchase permits at the sheriff's office.

However, there is a fee for the convenience. All the other requirements that go along with getting a permit still apply.
