New Online Service for Concealed Handgun Permit Applications

The Mesa County Sheriff’s Office is now offering an online process for Concealed Handgun Permit (CHP) applications.

Mesa County residents can now apply for, renew, and submit payment for their CHP electronically from the convenience of their desktop or mobile phone. The online service, Permitium, takes applicants through the online application and then schedules an in-person appointment. During the scheduled appointment at the Mesa County Sheriff’s Office, applicants will be fingerprinted and have their photo taken to complete the CHP application process.

“We want to be respectful of people’s time and provide better customer service. During peak times, people have had to wait more than an hour. We are looking to reduce that to less than 20 minutes,” said Records Administrator Donna Draper. “This new service moves the application process online where it can be completed at your convenience.”

The online CHP application process is now live. Residents are encouraged to have a copy handy of their Colorado Government photo ID and training certificate before beginning the application.

As of February 22, 2021, all New and Renewal applications are required to be submitted electronically. No walk-in appointments will be available.

Thank you for your patience while we make this transition.
