Concealed Weapons Permits

The police station lobby is currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Consequently, NEW concealed pistol licenses are not being accepted at this time, as fingerprinting is a required part of the process.  We anticipate being open again to the public (by appointment only) after Governor Inslee moves the county into Phase 3.

Need to renew your Concealed Pistol License?

There is a special process now in place for the convenience of those who need to renew a Concealed Pistol License (CPL) during the current lobby closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
