The reason you need to be certain you must apply to the LASD is that, in all honesty, your chances are not good you will be approved. Your chances may not be any better applying to your local police department. LA County, as a whole, is very unfriendly when it comes to those desiring/needing a CCW. If you still decide to apply to the LASD for a CCW License, the following links will guide you.

LASD CCW Application (please read to the end of the application for specific information about the process)

Given the reality of issuance in LA County, what can you do to improve the situation? First, you can get involved here and stay involved. We will continually provide information which you can then use to contact your local and state officials regarding the situation in LA County. You can talk about CCW issuance with people you know. You can share how the highly discretionary system works--or doesn't, in the majority of cases.

The one thing you should not do is give up. Change will not happen overnight. But it will happen. Good luck and stay tuned.
