Report 2017-101: Concealed Carry Weapon Licenses: Sheriffs Have Implemented Their Local Programs Inconsistently and Sometimes Inadequately (Release Date: December 2017)

Recommendation #4 To: Sacramento County Sheriff's Department

To ensure that staff are following its newly established procedures and to identify any need for additional guidance, by March 2018 Sacramento should establish a review process wherein it regularly reviews a selection of license files and denied applications to determine whether its staff are collecting sufficient and consistent documentation in accordance with its policies and are appropriately including which requirement applicants did not meet in its denial letters.

Note: After the conclusion of our audit, the sheriff's department informed us that it did not intend to provide any additional response to the audit beyond what it already provided. The department's response to our audit is included in our original report.
