Concealed Weapon Permit - CCW

Tracy Police Department would like to thank you for your interest in a “Carry Concealed Weapon” (CCW) permit.

 It is the intent of Tracy Police Department to strictly adhere to the rules outlined by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Penal Code §§26150 through 26225. Those rules are carefully outlined in the application packet.
 
All new and renewing applicants must submit a “CCW” Department of Justice Application.  Please thoroughly read and complete the application. Illegible, incomplete, willful omissions or untruthfulness will cause your application to be rejected.
 
A voluntary application review is available to you by appointment through the Office of Professional Standards prior to submitting the application and paying fees.
 
You may schedule this review by contacting the Office of Professional Standards at (209) 831-6559.
 
Following are the requirements as stipulated in Penal Code §26150
 
Residency: You must be a resident of the City of Tracy and show proof of such; i.e. utility bill, subscriptions, etc. These must be no older than 30 days. Post Office Box addresses are not residences and will not be accepted. A valid California Identification Card or Drivers License must also be presented. Proof of ownership of any weapon to be licensed must be provided. All applicants must be at least 21 years of age or older.
 
Good Moral Character: You must be of “Good Moral Character”; No disqualifying law violations or convictions, no dishonorable discharge from military. You must submit three letters of character reference from persons other than family members.
 
Good Cause: “Good Cause” is defined in the Attorney General Opinion 77/30 I.L. 1977 as “The issuing authority must determine whether the threat to the applicant (or other casual situation) is as real as the applicant asserts (e.g., is there a clear and present danger to the applicant, his spouse, his family or his employees). 
 
Finally if the danger is manifest, the authority should determine whether that danger cannot be significantly alleviated by alternative means of security and whether the danger in fact can be lawfully mitigated by the applicant’s obtaining a concealed weapon license.” You must submit an attached letter outlining your “Good Cause” justification for your need to be issued a CCW.
 
Renewal applicants must update the justification (Good Cause) statement to reflect your current need to have a CCW permit.
 
Training: You must complete required training as stipulated in the Penal Code §§26165 and the course must be acceptable to the Tracy Police Department. Additionally, the training required must be supported by an approved certificate of completion. New applicants must complete a course which meets the requirements outlined in Penal Code §§26165(b). Renewal applicants must complete a course which meets the requirements of Penal Code §§26165(c).
 
A list of acceptable course providers is available from the Tracy Police Department, upon request.
