Thank you for inquiring about our Carry Concealed Weapon (CCW) permit process. The attachment below outlines the CCW process for the City of Atascadero. All residents who reside in the City of Atascadero must apply through the Atascadero Police Department to obtain a CCW. The process outlined below was drafted to follow the laws established by the California Penal Code.  It was our intent to clearly outline the process in the document below, so please read the document in its entirety before making any inquires to the police department.

The CCW guidelines established by our agency are intended to ensure our citizens constitutional rights, by following current law.  While at the same time taking appropriate steps  to keep our community safe.

The Atascadero Police Department established the Service Area Program as a means to enhance community outreach, accountability and to give the public a single point of contact for issues and concerns.  The program is designed to provide community members the ability to contact a designated Coordinator to address non-emergency, on-going concerns; such as graffiti or nuisance abatement, landlord-tenant disputes, general public safety and improvement in the quality of life.

We divided the City into five distinct geographic areas and have designated these regions as the A, B, C, D and E service areas.  Each Area Coordinator is being held accountable for understanding the issues and concerns unique to their service area and for developing strategies and directing resources to solve problems and improve the quality of life for our citizens.  We are always willing to meet with residents and business owners.  You are encouraged to communicate with the Coordinator responsible for your service area via telephone or e-mail.  If you have a traffic issue occurring in your service area please contact our Traffic Unit.

 The Atascadero Police Department is committed to working with you to improve the community.

Service Area Downtown

It is important for our residents to understand that the Area Coordinator is not a substitute for dialing 911 in an emergency or for making a call to our dispatch center should a routine request for police services be needed.

The men and women of the Atascadero Police Department proudly serve the City of Atascadero, a beautiful Central Coast community with a population of approximately 28,000 occupying an area of just under 27 square miles.

APD embraces the value of fostering and maintaining positive relationships both externally and within our organization in providing superior quality service delivery. We understand our ability to be effective in reducing crime largely hinges on the relationship we have with the community and other stakeholders. Open and honest communication, transparency, empowerment and accountability are key elements ingrained in our culture.
Reducing crime, promoting organizational excellence, strengthening relationships, enhancement of traffic safety, leveraging technology, and enhancement of infrastructure are the six primary objectives in our Department's current five-year strategic plan. Each objective is tied to a number of initiatives that, when executed, translate to better service and a stronger organization.
Take Control

You can dramatically reduce your chances of being the victim of a property crime by simply locking your car and closing your garage door. Criminals in most reported thefts in Atascadero gained access to their objective through unsecured doors.
