The State of West Virginia allows its residents to open or conceal carry a weapon without a permit. Due to the COVID-19 stay at home restriction the office is not open for normal permit services; however, even
with normal office operations being restricted, there are ways to have your concealed carry application
If you are an essential employee working out of state and require a ccw as an aspect of your employment or have a critical need, we will make accommodations for you. You can submit your completed, sign and notarized application with a copy of your current permit, driver’s license, and letter from your employer by mailing it to 102 Industrial Blvd, Kearneysville, WV 25430 with your check for $75.00 made payable to
JCSO. Make sure that you include your contact information.
We are now also able to accept payments by credit card. If you would prefer this method, you can email
the above information to email@example.com. Once your application and supporting letter have been
reviewed for completeness and accuracy, you will receive an invoice for $77.55. This includes a
convenience fee to cover the vendors processing fees. An appointment will be made for you to come to the office for your picture once your ccw is ready for pick up. If you choose to email your application, it is
requested that you bring your original application and documents with you when you come to the office
to complete the process.
