Jefferson County, CO. – Effective immediately, the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is implementing modified processes for concealed handgun permit applications that have been temporarily suspended since March 16, 2020. The new processes will remain in effect until the public lobby reopens and the Records Unit can resume standard permitting procedures.
For qualified Jefferson County residents without a current concealed handgun permit, the Sheriff’s Office will issue a Temporary Emergency Permit. Unless rescinded, these permits will be valid for 90 days. If the modified processes remain in effect beyond the 90 days, Temporary Emergency Permits will be automatically renewed for an additional 90 days. Temporary Emergency Permit holders will not need to take any action in the event of an automatic renewal unless there is basis for revocation or suspension.
For both Temporary Emergency Permit requests and renewal requests (including renewals that expired no more than 6 months before the renewal application), the following is implemented to ensure a secure and timely application process:
• Residents MUST contact the Sheriff’s Office to initiate the application process by requesting an application be emailed, faxed, or mailed to them. Applicants should include their full name, phone number, mailing address, and email address when requesting an application by email or fax:
• Application fees must be paid by Visa or Mastercard:
• The Sheriff’s Office will process applications in the order they are received and will conduct background investigations to determine each applicant’s eligibility.
• Permit cards for approved applicants will be mailed to the primary address provided on the application.
Residents may visit the Sheriff’s Office website for more information at https://www.jeffco.us/677/Concealed-Handgun-Permits, or direct questions about the concealed handgun permitting process to Records at 303-271-5542.
