Snowmobile Permit

The Porter Co. Sheriff’s Office wants to remind the public that snowmobiles that operate on the traveled portion of public highways in Porter County must be registered with the Porter County Sheriff’s Office.

To register your snowmobile, come to the Sheriff’s Office Monday through Friday from 8am—3:45pm (except holidays). Please bring:
