Default CCW Process, & Application Question

First off, in Contra Costa County, city is Concord.

I went to the PD and asked for an application, they gave me the 14 page packet and basically said "good luck"

I have seen some people ask on here about filling out the Good Cause statement, and I am wondering if that is the section in the application?

According to the instructions, that section, (section 7) is NOT to be complete, but "reviewed" for oral interview...? So do you not actually WRITE a good cause statement?

Secondly, there are several sections that ask for signatures, but say "witness" so technically those parts need to be done in front of someone at the PD correct?

Finally, what is the step after filling out the parts I can, do I just go back to the PD and "turn it in" to the front desk?

Thank you.

Although we'd like to, there are few (if any) amongst us who will be able to explain what a specific Issuing Agency is wanting from you.

I'm going to suggest that you do a bunch more research before moving forward.

First, go back to the issuing agency and ask for their written policy on issuance and any instructions on filling out the form.

If they wonder what you're talking about, share with them the following:
26160. Each licensing authority shall publish and make available a
written policy summarizing the provisions of Section 26150 and
subdivisions (a) and (b) of Section 26155.

26155. (a) When a person applies for a license to carry a pistol,
revolver, or other firearm capable of being concealed upon the
person, the chief or other head of a municipal police department of
any city or city and county may issue a license to that person upon
proof of all of the following:
(1) The applicant is of good moral character.
(2) Good cause exists for issuance of the license.
(3) The applicant is a resident of that city.
(4) The applicant has completed a course of training as described
in Section 26165.
Then spend some time reading the information throughout this site, and studying the Penal Code in this area. You'll learn many useful things, like the requirement that they have a written policy.

Good luck.

Does the policy need to be posted online somewhere? Or is that something I will have to ask the gigantic Corporal at the PD station for..
