Q: Is my name entered into any kind of database if I am a Concealed Handgun Permit holder in the State of Colorado?
Yes. If you possess a Concealed Handgun Permit from the State of Colorado, your name and other identifying information will be entered into the CCIC (CBI computer system). It will be accessible only by law enforcement and cannot be shared with anyone outside of law enforcement (i.e., the general public or the media). This database is not used for compilation purposes (facts, figures or lists); it is similar to how a driver’s license is entered into a State of Colorado database and is necessary for use in law enforcement situations.
This is rather old info. El Paso County Sheriff Terry Makkita does not enter names anywhere, and there is no linkbetween DL info and this data base
. As I said above, you can carry a loaded handgun in your car anywhere in Colorado, so what purpose is served by some cop knowing you have a CCW--passed background check, when some dirtbag doesn't and intends to shoot the first cop he sees? Where is the greater risk? To me, this is a non-issue.
A timely removal from the file means an immediate removal once the
originating agency has documentation the fugitive has been arrested or is no
longer wanted in Colorado. Timely system inquiry means initiation of the
transaction before an officer begins writing an arrest or citation document of
; storing inquiries when CCIC is down and submitting them at once
when the system returns, regardless of whether the subject is still in custody;
inquiry prior to the release of a person who has been incarcerated; and
inquiry upon those who appear at a custodial facility to visit inmates before
the visitor leaves the facility.
Timeliness of entry/modification in the Missing Person File
is the same as in
the Wanted Person File
Timely entry/modification of vehicle, license plate, and vehicle part data
matches the wanted person standard, less the extradition considerations.
Entry should be made as soon as cross-checking with the Motor Vehicle
Division files has been completed.
