What do I do if I am denied?

All applicants will receive notice in writing regarding the denial of their application. Applicants who are denied a concealed weapons license will be advised of the reason for the denial. Applicants may appeal if their application for a license is denied. All appeals must be submitted in writing to:

Placer County Sheriff’s Office
Attention: CCW Licenses
2929 Richardson Drive
Auburn, CA 95604

Written appeals should be specific, clearly outlining the applicant’s rebuttal to the reason stated for denial. Additional information, which may be pertinent to the applicants request for a license should also be included. 

Note

Appeals must be received by the Sheriff’s Office no later than thirty days from the date of the notification letter.
