How do I apply for a Concealed Pistol License (CPL)?

Do to an expected influx of fingerprints, please expect a delay when you come in. There is only one person allowed in the lobby at a time and masks are required, they will be provided if you do not have one. Before we take you back for fingerprints, we will have you sanitize your hands and ask you a couple basic questions. Thank you for your patience as we work through this.
