Default Fresno County Sheriff Dept CCW Unit is backlogged, go Fresno City if a resident.

I recently got this email.
Quote:
Some of you might be aware that the Sheriff’s Office is back logged on first time interviews for Concealed Weapons Permits. Our appointments for first time

Interviews are being booked now in the first week of January 2012. We have been in contact with Ed Torrez from FPD concealed weapons units, they have

Relaxed their restrictions and they are issuing permits. Can you advise your clients, that if they live within the city limits they can apply through the Fresno Police Department. All county residents still have to apply thru the Sheriff’s Office. Contact person at the Fresno PD is Ed Torrez, phone # 276-6056
Just an FYI for you in the Central Valley Fresno City or County area.

"Relaxed"...does that mean they'll accept "I'm applying for my conceal weapons permit so that I am able to defend my self and family in the event that someone threats our lives". ???? (Off topic: is something like this being accepted in Sacramento ever since cgf took them to court??

We're assisting FPD on some issues and expect to see a process more in line with State Law soon Meanwhile, County SO is going to continue to disregard that little "due process of law" nuance.

I have been thinking of getting my CCW for sometime now. My wife just finished up all her paperwork and submitted hers, but she is a business owner with a prior incident that made it easier for her. We just recently moved out to a Fresno county island on the outskirts of town, I have heard that this may make it easier for me. Is this true or does anyone have any information about this? Thanks.

Wow, didn't know that was going on. Yes and no, City PD CCW policy has more to do with City Council and City Counsel than the Chief

From the article at the link

During his decade in office, Dyer has helped clean up the streets of Fresno. By concentrating on gang crackdowns, violent crime in the city has dropped more than 30%.
Funny how that works - concentrate LE resources on criminals, and crime goes down.

Not necessarily. The point was that Fresno City Council set the policy, and the change would happen there. The only recent difference was the Chief's administration and application of discretion.

FYI - this still seems to be the case. I contacted the sheriff's office today to make an appointment. I was given late February, 2014! That's quite a backlog. The person I spoke to kindly suggested I apply with the City PD, since I live in city limits. She told me that the PD is issuing licenses, and that they could get me in this month. I'm not sure if "they are issuing licenses" means they're as "liberal" with issuing licenses as the SO though. Does anyone know if getting denied by the PD would negatively impact a later application with the SO? The application does ask if you'd been denied before and specifics about the denial.

Default Fresno city.

Last I heard Fresno city does accept "Self Defense" as good cause and that was done via a city council vote.

Yup, if you live in the City go to Fresno PD. Much faster... (at least for now)
