The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office will reopen the lobby at its headquarters on Monday, May 18 at 8:00am for its Concealed Handgun Program (CHP) and fingerprinting only. Both programs will be available by appointment only; applicants can begin scheduling appointments on May 11 by calling 720-874-3929. The CHP program will process applicants and conduct fingerprinting for concealed handgun permits Monday through Thursday from 8:00am to 4:00pm and will be closed for appointments on Fridays. Appointments will be spaced every 20 minutes, with a limit of 20 per day to allow staff to properly clean and disinfect the fingerprinting area between appointments. Those arriving without an appointment will be asked to call (720) 874-3929 to schedule an appointment. Those seeking renewals of their concealed handgun permits will be urged to do so online. The exception is out of county residents who relocate to Arapahoe County who will need to come in and have their photos taken.
Social distancing will continue to be practiced inside the lobby. All visitors will be required to wear a cloth face covering or non-medical mask. Chairs will be marked to indicate queue lines consistent with social distancing guidelines and all customers are asked to practice proper hygiene, including covering sneezes and coughs and washing hands or using sanitizer.
Fingerprinting for civilians or non-CHP applications, such as employment, liquor licensing, educators, etc. will be done by appointment only Monday through Thursday from 7:00 a.m. to 12 p.m. There will be no appointments on Fridays.
The Records/Civil/Warrants section will remain closed to walk in traffic. Please continue to conduct all business with us online at www.arapahoesheriff.org, including paying traffic fines, requesting public records and reporting crimes only if no immediate response is needed and no one is in danger. If there is an emergency, please dial 911.
The current status with evictions will remain as is until May 15, when the current order by the Arapahoe County Chief Judge expires or is extended beyond that date.
We will not be accepting appointments at this time from the public for the release of property from our Property/Evidence Section.
Please note: The May 18 reopen date is subject to change.
