CONEJOS COUNTY— Applicants for concealed carry handgun permits need:
The following is a list of items that you will need to have completed prior to receiving a Concealed Carry Handgun Permit (CCHP) from the Conejos County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO.
There is no exact timeline on receiving a CCHP, as this depends on the background and fingerprint checks done by the CBI (Colorado Bureau of Investigations.)
You will need:
• An application, completely filled out, which can be picked up at the Conejos County Sheriff’s Office. You will need to have the application signed in front of a notary public, which is available at the CCSO Monday through Friday by appointment only, excluding holidays.
• A copy of your driver’s license.
• Proof of a handgun training course. These will be verified to make sure the training is legitimate and through a respected instructor. CCSO does NOT accept Hunter Safety Cards as training! We do not accept online courses. If you do not let your initial card expire, the training you took initially is good and you will not have to train each time you renew.
• Your fingerprints will need to be taken at the CCSO Monday through Friday by appointment only, please call ahead of time. If you are renewing your CCHP, and have already had your fingerprints taken, you will not have to go through this process again!
• A MONEY ORDER made out to CBI in the amount of $52.50, to process your fingerprints and complete the background check. If you are renewing your CCHP, you will need a MONEY ORDER made out to CBI in the amount of $13.00 Cash and checks are not accepted.
If this application is for renewal only, your completed notarized application will be sent to CBI. As explained before, there is not a timeline on receiving your CCHP. This will depend on CBI. Once your fingerprints and background have been processed by CBI and you have received clearance, the Conejos County Sheriff’s Office will notify you and make arrangements for you to come in and pick up your CCHP.
