CCW License

In the next couple of weeks, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department CCW unit will be going to an online (paperless) application system. This system will increase our efficiency and allow an unlimited number of firearms to be listed on a CCW license. The same rules will apply to adding a handgun to your license. You must qualify with and have the handgun inspected with one of our authorized training providers.
