The Fresno Police Department’s Concealed Weapon License Policy was established pursuant to City of Fresno Ordinance No. 95-7 adopted on January 24, 1995, by the Fresno City Council. A copy of the Department’s policy and the California Department of Justice Standard Application for License to Carry a Concealed Weapon (CCW) form is attached. This policy will acquaint you with the application process and the basic requirements for obtaining a concealed weapon permit.

  • (2) The applicant is at least 21 years of age, and presents clear evidence of the person’s identity and age, as defined in Section 16400.
  • (3) The applicant is a resident of that city or city and county.

The presumption of residency in the county or city within the county may be rebutted by satisfactory evidence that the applicant’s primary residence is in another county or city within the county.
