Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) There is a new cross- border collaboration on pistol permits. The Broome County Sheriff's Office Department is teaming up with the Susquehanna County Sheriff's Office.

The Broome County Sheriff's office said it modeled a new agreement after the Chemung and Bradford County Sheriff's offices. It's an agreement that allows for non-resident pistol permits to be issued.

Gun owners in Susquehanna County, Pennsylvania can apply for a permit in Broome County, New York -- and vice-versa. For Pennsylvania residents-- they must be a property owner or work in New York State to apply.
