CCW APPLICANTS WITH AN EXISTING INTERVIEW APPOINTMENT
If you already have an appointment for a new CCW interview, you will soon receive an email asking you to create your CCW profile and pre-register for your interview. Please follow the instructions contained in that email.
NEW CCW APPLICANTS
During the past several months our office has experienced a dramatic increase in new CCW license applications. With our current capacity, the average wait time to book a CCW interview has grown beyond 11 months.
In January we began taking steps to increase our CCW processing capacity by adding more staff and implementing a new automated CCW system. These changes will allow us to reduce the wait time for both current and future applicants.
We have temporarily suspended taking new CCW applications while these changes are implemented. We anticipate this suspension to last a few weeks while we convert to our new systems. Please check back frequently for a link to our new CCW application system.
Thank you for your patience while we make these improvements to our CCW process.
PLACER COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE
Please note that we are facing extended delays with the return of Clearance Letters from the State of California, which is expected to continue into 2016. We have also been notified of a significant backlog of Live Scan (Fingerprint) submissions at DOJ. PCSO cannot issue a CCW License until the Clearance Letter and Live Scan results are received. As DOJ results come in we will process them as quickly as we can.
We appreciate the patience of our citizens who seek to become CCW License holders while we make improvements to the application process. In early 2016 PCSO will be implementing a new online system for issuance of CCW Licenses. This system will assist with the growing demand for license issuance and improve our ability to manage the CCW process in more a timely manner. Applicants will soon have the option of using a credit card for payment of fees associated with CCW issuance. Additionally, current licensees will be able initiate their CCW renewal online after the new system is implemented.
Thank you for your patience during this period of transition. We look forward to providing an improved level of service for all CCW holders and applicants.
Important Please Read First
It is critical that you follow the instructions related to your specific CCW process. Failure to do so will result in delays and possibly denial of your request.
We have been notified by the Department of Justice that due to the high volume of gun sales, all background checks and live scan results will be delayed.
