While our offices are closed due to COVID-19 and no fingerprinting services are available, we continue processing CPL applications.
To apply for a CPL, you must be fingerprinted at a business other than Everett Police. (An internet search should locate open/available services.) Bring a completed Concealed Pistol Application and fingerprint card to the North Precinct (3002 Wetmore Ave) between Monday & Friday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. When you arrive at the precinct, call the number listed on the front door and someone will assist you.
CPL’s cost $45.25 and can only be paid with VISA or MasterCard.
You must be a resident of the City of Everett or live outside the state of WA to obtain a Concealed Pistol License (CPL) from the Everett Police Department. Applications may be picked up during normal business hours but are only processed when fingerprinting is available.
Permits are valid for 5 years.
The cost of an initial CPL is $45.25.
The fee for renewal of a CPL by the expiration date is $32.00. A CPL may be renewed up to 90 days after the expiration date by paying a late fee. The late renewal fee is $10.00, making the total fee $42.00.
**If not renewed within these time limits, the process starts over with the initial CPL application to include new fingerprints.**
The cost to replace a lost CPL is $10.00 but it must have been originally obtained through the Everett Police Department.
ARMED FORCES RENEWAL - OUT OF STATE DEPLOYMENT:
Currently deployed members of the Armed Forces, including the National Guard and Armed Forces Reserves, who are deployed out of state, can renew their CPL by mail. This must be done within 90 days of the expiration of the existing CPL. The fee for this type of renewal is $32.00 plus a late fee of $10.00, making the total fee $42. The license in this circumstance is only valid for a period of one year.
To renew the CPL in this circumstance, contact the Everett Police Department Records Unit at 425-257-8400 or via email. We will send the application electronically or by standard mail. Completed applications must be submitted with a copy of your original order, designating the period of deployment, a copy of a valid government issued ID. Payment must be made via phone with a debit/credit card for the renewal fee.
The law also allows for members of the Armed Forces to renew their license within 90 days of the expiration if they were deployed but have since returned to the state. A copy of the original deployment order is still required. In this case, the late fee is waived and the standard renewal fee of $32.00 applies.
