With the new service, applicants for a new CPL may apply, pay fees, and schedule an appointment for fingerprinting at the Battle Ground Police Department, all online.  Fingerprinting by scheduled appointment reduces COVID-19 health risks.   

Renewal CPL applicants may use the same online service, making the application and payment process more streamlined.

The Battle Ground Police Department CPL online application service, available at www.cityofbg.org/560/Concealed-Pistol-Licensing, is restricted to those who reside within Battle Ground city limits.  Residents who live in unincorporated areas of Battle Ground may apply for a CPL with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office. 

Police Department staff are available at (360) 342-5200 or online and are happy to answer any questions regarding residency or the CPL application process.
