The Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office is currently accepting and processing CCW applications. However, due to the extremely large number of applications we received during the Peruta v. San Diego arguments in Federal Court, there is a tremendous backlog. Please be patient as we work our way through the backlog. As such, we are not able to provide status updates on individual applications at this time.
If you are interested in applying for a CCW permit, please complete the application below and submit it either via mail or in person to:
Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office
ATTN: CCW Unit
55 W Younger Avenue
San Jose, CA 95110
