Local Law Enforcement's Role in Concealed Carry Being Tested


Just days into the process, police agencies around Illinois are already concerned that they will fall behind as they try to keep pace with the flood of applications for concealed carry permits.

 

Local law enforcement has 30 days to raise objections about applicants whose behavior might raise concerns, even if it doesn’t turn up on a criminal background check. But the concealed carry law did not provide any additional funding for local police to scrutinize those applications.

 

Sangamon County Undersheriff Jack Campbell says his agency won’t rush the process… and will take the time to check each application carefully, even if it takes longer than the 30-day limit.
