3. Q: How do I start the process for a “Carry Concealed Weapon” permit?
You first must attend a firearm course offered by a Certified Firearms Instructor (Sheriff’s Office has a list of Instructors). After graduation check this web site on the CCW page and get your application or come by the Sheriff’s Office and obtain a Carry Concealed Weapon (CCW) packet. There will be a cover letter explaining the process. It will take up to 90 days to get your CCW permit. Once you fill out the application you must make an appointment with Sgt. Thompson to go through the process.
