Section 1231.70  Objections

 

a)         Criminal history background checks for all FCCL applicants will be conducted by the Department.  Law enforcement officials who wish to raise an objection to an FCCL applicant shall not use LEADS to run background checks to determine FCCL eligibility.

 

b)         Law enforcement officials may submit objections outside of the criminal history background check procedure via an electronic objection process available on the Department's website.  Manual submissions and LEADS information will not be accepted.

 

1)         Law enforcement officials submitting an objection shall provide a narrative outlining the detailed reason for the objection.

 

2)         Law enforcement officials submitting an objection shall attach any available documentation, other than information obtained from LEADS, supporting their objection.

 

c)         The Department may deny an application based upon a disqualifier identified pursuant to Section 25 of the Act; however, the local law enforcement official shall be permitted to submit objections for the duration of the objection period prescribed by Section 15 of the Act. 

 

d)         If, upon or after receiving an objection from a local law enforcement official, an FCCL applicant is disqualified through the criminal history background check conducted under Section 25 of the Act, the Department will maintain a record of those objections.  The objections will not be forwarded to the Concealed Carry Licensing Review Board for further consideration.
