Where do I go to get my CCW renewed?

As long as all of your information is current on your CCW Endorsement, your renewal with the Camden County Sheriff's Department is a simple one. A report is generated every month by Camden County to determine whose permits are up for renewal and, pending background check for the previous three (3) years, are automatically renewed.  The applicant will be notified by phone when the permit is ready and pickup times. There is a Fifty Dollar ($50.00) renewal fee and can be paid by cash, check or money order made payable to “CCSD Revolving Fund”.

 

If the permit is expired more than six months, the permit is canceled and the applicant must apply for an entirely new permit.

 

If your information is not current, you need to contact the agency that issued the certificate.
