Concealed Handgun Licenses
The Sheriff's Office issues concealed handgun licenses for the residents of Douglas County. Each new applicant fills out an application, is fingerprinted, photographed and an extensive criminal, civil, and mental health background check is conducted. Applications are accepted by appointment only.
You may schedule an appointment online.
Renewal applications are currently being accepted by mail. The Sheriff's Office will mail a renewal letter which explains the process. If you have moved from the time of your last appointment and have not yet updated your address with the Concealed Handgun License Unit, you may not receive the renewal letter. You may obtain a renewal application under "Helpful Documents" on the right side of the screen. Please complete the application and return it to the Sheriff's Office along with the renewal fee. If you choose not to renew by mail, you may schedule an appointment.
