If I obtain a concealed handgun permit, will the sheriff’s office release my information to the public?

No. Per C.R. S. 18-12-206 (3) (a), sheriff’s offices are only allowed to share applicant information with other law enforcement agencies. No information about an applicant is released to the public. The information requested is classified as a criminal justice record covered by Part III of the Open Record’s Act, which states that the custodian may deny access to criminal justice records when disclosure would be contrary to the public interest. 24-72-305(5) C.R.S. Per 18-12-206 (4), a copy of the annual report, prepared for the general assembly, may also be given to a member of the public upon request, but these reports include numbers only and do not provide names, addresses, etc.
