You apply for the permit at the office of whichever department would respond if you called 911 from your home address. So for example, if Island County Sheriffs would respond, they would be the ones to take your CCW app. If the city police would respond, you apply at the city police department's office. It's a very easy process. You fill out a form that says you aren't a violent person/serial rapist/illegal immigrant/talking penguin, and submit fingerprints. They mail you a CWP in 6-8 weeks (can take less time, but they set a 6-8 week expectation).
