Good News for Fresno residents. Sheriff Margaret Mims is pro CCW and you have a good chance of obtaining a CCW permit.
To apply for a CCW Permit contact Rick Lyons or Jimmy Aquirre of the Fresno County Sheriff's Department at (559) 488-3083, Mondays through Thursdays from 8:00 am - 4:00 pm to schedule an appointment for an interview.
How to prepare for your First Interview:
-Fill out the California CCW permit application
-Type your “good Cause” on a separate paper
• Make sure you have all the supporting documentation for your good cause.
• If your “good Cause” is business related, you may need to show proof or a letter from your employer.
• No need for reference letters according to some previous Fresno CCW applicants.
-The interviewer will ask a series of questions depending on what you write in your “Good Cause”. Most likely this is just to make sure he understands the applicant a bit better. The more thorough your “Good Cause” letter is, seems that the fewer questions are asked.
- Take a short test about carrying Concealed Weapons
- If the interviewer has any last questions, this is when he will ask you.
- When completed, you will then be fingerprinted and you will start your background check.
Remember to Please Read general FAQ by OCResident
