Concealed Weapons Permit

It is the policy of the Beaumont Police Department to refer all applicants for a CCW license to the Riverside County Sheriff Department for processing.  As an alternative that is completely voluntary, the Beaumont Police Department will accept CCW license applications from Beaumont residents who wish to process those applications through a third-party provider. 

Carry Concealed Weapon (CCW) License Program

A CCW License allows qualified individuals to carry an approved, concealed firearm on their person for the purpose of self-protection.  The voluntary, alternative CCW license process takes approximately 2-3 months to complete.  CCW licenses are valid for a two year period from the date of issuance.

The following information provides a brief overview of the voluntary, alternative CCW License Program; which includes the program requirements, the licensing process and certain restrictions in obtaining a CCW license.  The Beaumont Police Department is pleased to offer this service to the citizens of Beaumont as a tool for personal protection and with the overall goal for increased public safety.
