Covid-19 has made a million things a real pain in the butt, and one of those pains was for anyone trying to get a concealed pistol license.

This also applied to those who let their license lapse (they're good for 5 years) long enough to require re-fingerprinting. Well, here's some good news: fingerprinting will resume Tuesday, January 12 at the West Richland Police Department. In case you don't know, anyone wanting a CPL must apply at the police department located where they live. Kennewick residents apply at the Kennewick Police Department and so on. When I got my CPL, it was $50 and fingerprints, then you get your license in the mail in 30 days or less. For all the details for West Richland residents, click HERE. I also noticed on that link that if you plan on leaving town for a few days and would like officers from the West Richland Police Department to drive by periodically and keep an eye on your home, you can sign up for that also. Nice service and thank you! I would guess the other police agencies offer similar services. When the pandemic over, this process will become much easier for current and new Mid Columbia gun owners.

Both CPL and Civilian fingerprinting services will resume next Tuesday, January 12th. Visit: http://www.westrichland.org/depts/police/
for days and hours of service.
