From Orange County Sheriff Barnes:
The Coronavirus (COVID-19) has compelled the CCW unit to temporarily change how we conduct business.
Our mission is to provide high-quality service while taking proactive measures to maintain the mutual safety of our CCW staff and CCW applicants. In compliance with Local, State, and Federal Guidelines, we have suspended in-person transactions and public access to the Brad Gates Building (320 N. Flower, Santa Ana).
Current CCW license holders can renew their CCW license through the website. Upon administrative approval, and after payment is received, the CCW license will be mailed to the licensee via US Postal Service.
We will continue to accept and process new applications for CCW licenses submitted online. However, new license issuance will be on hold until our CCW office reopens for public access as first-time license issuance requires in-person transactions.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. If you should have questions or concerns, please email us at
