Prefix for Missouri




New owners of any marked property should be encouraged by the sheriff to mark their identification number below the previous owner's mark for uniformity and ease of identification.  The sheriff of any city not within a county shall identify each application for a weapon permit as provided in section 564.630* with the applicant's identification number of the police department in said city.
