In an attempt to streamline the CCW process from start to finish and cut down on the wait times for CCW appointments, the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office has implemented a new automated system for the process of CCW permits, Permitium. Permitium will allow applicants to fill out applications online, make a payment with credit card(s) online, and schedule their own appointments. It will also allow applicants to monitor the progress of their permits without having to call in to the CCW Unit. Also, this new process will allow for the ability to submit requests for modifications to permits for change of address, name change and weapon(s) changes.
To begin a CCW process, visit the following address:
