Carry Concealed Weapon License

It is the policy of the Murrieta Police Department to refer all applicants for a Concealed Carry Weapon (CCW) license to the Riverside County Sheriff for processing. As an alternative that is totally voluntary, the Murrieta Police Department will accept CCW license applications from Murrieta residents who wish to process those applications through a third-party provider.

How it Works

A CCW license allows qualified individuals to carry an approved, concealed firearm on their person for the purpose of self-protection. The voluntary, alternative CCW license process takes approximately 1 to 4 months to complete. CCW licenses are valid for a two year period from the date of issuance.

The following information provides a brief overview of the voluntary, alternative CCW License Program; which includes the program requirements, the licensing process and certain restrictions in obtaining a CCW license. The Murrieta Police Department is pleased to offer this service to the citizens of Murrieta as a tool for personal protection and with the overall goal for increased public safety.
