For your convenience, the Department of Law Enforcement provides online forms for you to report non-emergency crimes or incidents that are NOT in progress. Statement Forms allow you to report a non-emergency crime to Law Enforcement professionals, while our Tip Form allows you to anonymously provide information regarding an open or closed criminal case or incident of concern.

These services should never be used to report any kind of emergency or crime that requires an immediate response. These reports are only viewed by law enforcement personnel during normal business hours, 8am – 5pm, Monday – Friday, excluding holidays.

Please call 9-1-1 if a crime is in progress, someone is hurt or threatened, a weapon has been used or is present, or for any other emergency situation.

You must be at least 18 years of age and have been a resident of the State of Montana for at least six months. Any criminal convictions per the Montana codes may result in denial of the permit, or any omission of arrests and/or convictions may result in denial of the permit. It is required by law that you complete a certified firearms safety course before the application is submitted. For example, Hunter’s Safety, DD-214, or any other NRA Certified Instructed course. Proof of completion of such course can be a photocopy of certificate, an affidavit from the entity or instructor that conducted the course, or a copy of any other document that attests to completion of the course and can be certified through contact with the entity or instructor that conducted the course.

Download the Concealed Weapon Permit Application Form here and return the completed form, proof of certified firearms safety course completion, and photo identification to the Department of Law Enforcement.

Identity theft or identity fraud is a crime that occurs when a person uses someone else’s personal information for their personal gain. This includes “stealing” a person’s identifying information and using it to access the victim’s financial accounts or establish new accounts and incur debt in the name of the victim. Download our Personal Account Inventory here to learn ways to protect yourself from identity theft.

To report a case of identity theft, you must complete a report (available for download here or by visiting the Department of Law Enforcement) detailing the incident. The completed form must be certified by a Law Enforcement Officer and mailed or faxed to the Department of Consumer of Protection.

The Anaconda-Deer Lodge County Department of Law Enforcement performs sheriff’s sales per state statute. There are no Sheriff’s Sales scheduled at this time.  Please check back periodically for updates.
