Updates regarding your Butte County CCW
Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea supports the 2nd Amendment and the arming of responsible, law-abiding citizens. Occasionally his office sends out procedural updates regarding CCW training in Butte County. When those affect you
we'll post them here.
Most recent update: Summer 2017
Online Sheriff's Forms
The CCW application form for Butte County is now an active PDF form you can fill out online. You then print it out, sign it, and submit it in person at the BCSO Records office, 33 County Center Dr., Oroville. This is the point at which you also complete the LiveScan process and pay your initial fees. See the BCSO's Online Sheriff's Forms webpage for more information.
(Printing off the CCW Quick Reference Checklist would be a good idea, too.)

"RENEWING YOUR CCW? Please be advised that in the interest of public safety, the process to renew your CCW has changed. All renewal applicants.
If your CCW issued by the Butte County Sheriff’s Office has been expired for 30 days or more, please complete the DOJ standard application. (Find it here.)
If your permit is not yet expired or has been expired for less than 30 days, you will not need to complete an application in its entirety. Instead, we will have you review your original or most recent DOJ standard application and attest that the information is still accurate or advise us if any changes have occurred.
An updated background check will be performed for all requests for renewal and you will be notified of our decision once the updated background is complete. If approved you will then proceed to take your CCW class.
Fees will not be collected until you return your course certification and we issue your permit. In unique situations in which the Sheriff’s Office determines the applicant must start the process over for an initial CCW instead of a renewal CCW, the fee for an initial CCW license would be applicable.
This change is necessary in order to minimize the possibility of someone being issued a renewal CCW when they may no longer be eligible based on such things no longer meeting the residency requirement, a concern with good moral character, negative contacts with law enforcement agencies, etc. We appreciate your patience and understanding of the need for this change. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Butte County Sheriff’s Office Records Bureau at (530) 538-7391."
If you have questions about any of this or are unsure about filling in the application, feel free to contact us.
