Concealed Weapon Permits

Due to the recent events regarding COVID-19, effective immediately, The Placer County Sheriff’s Office has decided to cancel all scheduled CCW interviews through April 17, 2020. This unprecedented event will be evaluated as it evolves and cancellations may go beyond April 17th. Staff will do everything they can to contact you via telephone to inform you if your scheduled interview is to be cancelled. Once interviews are resumed, you will be contacted to reschedule your interview as soon as possible. Renewals and modifications will continue to be processed online but all documents must be uploaded to the application. No documents or payments (cash or check) will be accepted at the Auburn Justice Center. Please mail your payments at this time if you are unable to do so online. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, but the health and safety of the public and the Placer County Sheriff’s staff are our top priority. Thank you for your understanding!

We are now accepting applications from Placer County residents for new Carry Concealed Weapons (CCW) licenses, renewals, modifications and duplicate licenses.
