Concealed Pistol License
CONCEALED PISTOL LICENSE
Effective April 19, 2013
Due to significantly reduced staffing levels, the Pullman Police Department has had to reduce the hours that general fingerprinting services are provided to the public.
The only exception to this policy will be for individuals who need to be fingerprinted to apply for a new (original) concealed pistol license (CPL). Original CPL applications will only be processed:
Renewal and Replacement CPL applications, which do not require fingerprinting, can be processed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
We sincerely apologize for this inconvenience.
Applying for a Concealed Pistol License
Citizens who live within the city limits of Pullman and those who live out of state are eligible to apply for a Washington Concealed Pistol License at the Pullman Police Department.
Citizens who live outside the city limits will need to apply with the Whitman County Sheriff’s Office located in Colfax. *All non-US citizens must also apply with the Whitman County Sheriff’s office.
We accept applications Monday through Friday 8:30 to 4:30. You will need to fill out an application and all original applicants will be fingerprinted at the time of application. You will be asked to review your typed permit and at that time sign your permit. You will want to allow approximately 20 minutes for the entire process. You should receive your permit in the mail within 30 days. We highly recommend you have your permit laminated to help preserve it for the 5 years it is good for.
Look for a change in this procedure in October. Permits will come directly from DOL in a hard plastic form much like your driver’s license.
What is the License Fee?
- Original license fee is - $52.50
- Renewal license fee is - $32.00
- Late renewal license fee is - $42.00
- Replacement fee is - $10.00
Please be aware that CPL applications can be denied or after issued revoked due to a prohibiting violation. Money paid is non-refundable.
