So, a friend of mine..
Had taken his CWP course and needs to get finger printed before he can send in his paperwork and whatnot. We live in the same town and he was just over here. He stopped by to say what's up, happy birthday, and help me go through ammo. While he was here, he asked which police department I went to for the finger printing and it was in the next town over since I was already there. Well, he called our local PD and asked them (it was on speaker phone) if they do finger printing for CWP's and the guy responded "No. Call somewhere else for all'a'dat." and hung up.
Has anybody else had any experiences like this? I was shocked at how rude the guy was.
No, in NC we don't shop for police stations for the fingerprinting. The entire CCP process is handled by our county's sheriff's department, and we have to go the main sheriff's office in our county. No shopping required.
My city police are quite pleasant about it. Nominal fee.
The guy that answered your friend's call was quite rude and unprofessional.
Around here all of the small town pd's use Spartanburg County PD for their fingerprinting. The small towns don't have anyone trained on staff or if they do, that person is rarely in the office.
Unable to speak about your location.
Indiana is well streamlined.
1-2 weeks later you have your permit
I suggest you and your friend read all online instructions.
It's not up to you and your friend to attempt cutting in line.
If your state has not laid out clear concise instructions on the permit process; well..you must be in Illinois.
Fingerprinting for your CWP? Not here we don't! Why not just fingerprint everyone on Governmental Assistance? I'll give 3-to-1 odds they'll find those prints matched at more crime scenes than they'll ever find those of us permit holders!
I have had to be fingerprinted numerous times for adjuster licenses in multiple states, my local PD has been very nice about it, small fee.
here in mass when you get you permit you have to get your finger print at the same time.
Police training must have changed quite a bit since I took my basic school. Every officer at the academy was trained in taking fingerprints. Back in the late 1970's when I was a Police Explorer I was trained in taking fingerprints. In the early 1980's when I took courses at the local community college (Private Investigator/Detective, Criminal Investigations I & II) we were trained not only in taking fingerprints but also classifying them. Sounds to me that the OP's police just didn't want to fool with it.
