Just curious for anyone who is getting their CCW permit through their local police authority, what your wait times are/have been. I know the the local PD still has to go through the state. Its been just over 7 weeks since I submitted my application. I hope the wait isn't a lot longer but I have a feeling it will be.

The law says that the PD must issue or deny the permit within 30 days. The law doesn't say that the issuing authority must issue the permit within 30 days unless the state takes longer to process it. If they have no cause to deny the permit when the 30 days are up, then they must issue the permit.
Your complaint should be to the PD, and to the state attorney general. You could also try to file a writ of mandamus with the district court to get a court order forcing the PD to do their duty and issue the permit as required by state law.
Yeah I submitted my application Sept 25th, and local PD also told me to figure on waiting a month. I inquired while I was there voting on Nov 6th, and they said there were just waiting on a response from Augusta.
the state police announced the longer wait periods currently because of the volume of applications. i have a friend who submitted his almost 2 months ago they said they lost his paperwork it was found later but he still hasn't received his response keep calling
issue or deny but if you start being hostile they can just deny your application
Come next Saturday, I'll be at 90 days waiting for PPD to give me an answer... when I last called Internal Affairs (end of last month), I was told I should I know by the end of this month. They are waiting for my medical release to come back from Riverside. The lady I spoke with said they are notoriously slow and are averaging 30 days through the summer and 2+ through the winter months. I was told Dorithia Dix responded in two days. That's my experience thus far. Will keep everyone updated.
In Orono. Just picked my permit up not 10 mins ago. Dropped off Oct. 18 received Nov. 26(issued day 39) Resident less than 5 years.
No state ID required. I did, however, receive this nice reminder letter from the chief on state law and getting a new ID.

Congrats on getting it so quickly.
But that also pisses me off. I submitted my app 62 days ago. I've lived in this state for 29 years, with nothing on my record ever.

I am still waiting on Hampden PD... Been 30 days today. Figure I will cut them some slack due to the amount of Holidays during the 30 day period. I plan to call Friday for an update though
Augusta must have released a batch of these or something today, my local PD just called and said my permit is ready.
Anyone want to help get the backlog cleared up
Guess I'll be calling PPD again tomorrow! Will update as soon as I know something!
